Superstrings: A Theory of Everything?

by

Superstrings: A Theory of Everything? Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Geared to the layperson, a clear, concise, non-mathematical explanation of the "Theory of Everything" and its profound implications is followed by transcripts of interviews with most of the physicists involved in its development.

Synopsis:

This text, the material for which originated in a BBC radio programme, explains the superstring theory in layperson's terms. It shows how its implications could lead to an explanation for everything ("Theory of Everything") and the unification of physics.

Synopsis:

Superstring theory is one of the most exciting and actively pursued branches of physics today. The far-reaching claims made for this theory would, if correct, provide the much sought-after Theory of Everything, the unification of physics. It would enable the fundamental building blocks of matter to be identified and amalgamated in a common description, with a unified theory of all the forces of nature. This book explains the theory for laymen, in an introduction to the subject which originated in the BBC Radio programme, Desperately Seeking Superstrings.
