Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No one is more successful than this author when it comes to making the cutting edge of physics more accessible to a broad lay audience. In Schrodinger's Kittens, he took readers to the eerie world of subatomic particles & waves. Now, he explores the most exciting area of research in physics today: string theory. Following a series of major breakthroughs in the 1990s, physicists are putting together a clearer picture of how subatomic particles work. By hypothesizing particles as a single loop of vibrating string, they are on the brink of discovering a way to explain all of nature's forces in a single theory. Grandly named superstrings, & incorporating the ideas of supersymmetry, these models are the prime candidate for the long sought-for Theory of Everything. Written in clear & accessible language. The Search for Superstrings, Symmetry, & the Theory of Everything brings to life the remarkable scientific research that is on the cusp of radically altering our conception of the universe.
