I love this subject because, where the goal of civilization is to appreciate life in some form of organized chaos, some well spoken theorists have the ability to put things into perspective in such a way that the world seems to teem with possibi This book presents the latest breakdown of empirical existance with string theory- it's really well written and it sugguest how the fundimentals of all existing things come together in a very similar way as our understanding of music little vibrations. You go get them my fairy little oscillating strings, which so happen to explain black holes! He has become known to a wider audience through his books for the general public and a related PBS television special. He'd come mainly to play chess, but when I found out that he was involved in looking for supersymmetric particles I took the opportunity to ask how it was going. It is a heavy book- I don't recommend it for anyone who wants a quick, easy read.

El Universo Elegante: Supercuerdas, Dimenciones Ocultas Y La Busqueda De Una Teoria Final

Because of The Elegant UniverseI feel like I now have a fairly good understanding of the core concepts underlying Einstein's theories of special and general relativity, and quantum mechanics e.

BUT, not only are there five different versions to the theory, but also, and because we are talking about excruciatingly small objects, it is impossible to test it! But rest assured when the scientists get their act together and write an Idiot's guide to The Unified Theory Of Everything, I'll be the first in line. He maintains that string theory could be the one that finally unifies them and explain the number of particles we have and their specific masses and properties.

To ask other readers questions about El Universo Eleganteplease sign up. After he builds the foundation, he sets the stage to cover string theory which many believe will be the next great leap in figuring out why the universe exists and where is it going.

eo This may also be an oversimpl I have copious notes where I disagreed with the author. Newton, Einstein, Feynman, Hawking, and my cat can't all be right. He takes another route, if you want. These concepts are not very difficult. I recommend this book to anybody interested in astrophysics, to fans of Greene, and fl anybody looking for a book geared towards general readers that is more updated than Hawking's A Brief History of Time but that still offers insight into points that Hawking discusses in his famous book.

Wilson, Robert Trivers, and others is a strong one that explains a whole lot but you better be careful before you go painting too broad of a stroke briann those kinds of theories He'd come mainly to play chess, brin when I found out that he was involved in looking for supersymmetric particles I took the opportunity to ask how it was going.

He takes another route, if you …more It is described very easily, actually. If that happens, I'm sure I'll go back to reading books on this subject; I won't be able to stop myself. From the—for lack of a better word— point of view of Lightspeed, would there exist differing quantum pathways that wend throughout the four univeerso dimensions, and from a high enough level, will they appear identical at select points of chronological evolution? General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics.

While I understand he is probably the leading public proponent of string theory, I felt that his oversimplification lead to eegante really problematic axioms and it was upon these shaky foundations that he tried to map out string eelegante. As far as I understand, none of the string theories makes falsifiable predictions or suggests doable experiments compatible with today's technology. The LHC is now up to high enough energies. But then there's Greene's enthusiasm — which can easily electrify the reader but also just as easily undermine all of that careful hedging.

I guess the example that makes me least happy is supersymmetry, according to which every particle has a supersymmetric partner. View all comments. Would the theoreticians just retreat into saying that they needed a more powerful collider?

Trivia About The Elegant Unive Frankly, the entire idea of rolled up dimensions—of a universe containing perhaps ten, twelve, eighteen dimensions, of which we are only capable of perceiving four—is suitably mind-blowing and humbling at the same time; and although Greene's low-culture themed analogies that frequently pop-up to help elucidate the complex concepts he is trying to convey may irritate at times, he does a bang-up job in making it understandable without blotting the outlines in thick physiquese or mathematics.

For such a complicated and often "non intuitive" subject, Greene does an excellent job of laying out in understandable terms: I could go on my en Do I understand string theory?

Greene does a great job of putting everything in layman's term but there is a point which he must exceed the intellectual ionosphere and soar into the incalculable. Importantly these come with a gracious degree of explanation. Not after the incredible work he did in the earlier chapters re explaining relativity and quantum mechanics.

It reminds me of when Robert Wright hedges his bets in The Moral Animalsaying that the evolutionary psychology approach as championed by himself, Richard Dawkins, E. Consulting Google Scholar, my impression is that the book is highly respected: I really enjoyed the last few chapters:
