String theory, often called the “theory of everything,” is a relatively young science that includes such unusual concepts as superstrings, branes, and extra dimensions. Scientists are hopeful that string theory will unlock one of the biggest mysteries of the universe, namely how gravity and quantum physics fit together. 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 /5(2).

String theory moves real fast, and a lot of things viewed as problems in the book are now somewhat clarified. The book starts with the best crash-course I have read of modern physics. In just 60 pages, you are introduced to supersymmetry, relativity theory, quantum mechanics, particle physics, superstrings, and other conceptual issues/5(6).

Buy Superstring Theory: 25th Anniversary Edition (Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics) this book is invaluable for graduate students and researchers in general relativity and elementary particle theory.

The types of superstrings developed are Type I, Type IIA, Type IIB and heterotic (with various gauge symmetries). Cited by: The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory If youve heard of string theory, and know its not about tying shoelaces, then you probably know about Newtonian and Einsteinian physics, especially that which pertains Superstrings and particle theory book gravity, special relativity, and general relativity/5.

Steven S. Gubser, a physics professor at Princeton University, and author of The Little Book of String Theory, sums up the theory rather nicely, asserting that, “String theory aims to be a Author: Donavan Mason.

String theory moves real fast, and a lot of things viewed as problems in the book are now somewhat book starts with the best crash-course I have read of modern physics.

In just 60 pages, you are introduced to supersymmetry, relativity theory, quantum mechanics, particle physics, superstrings, and other conceptual issues/5(4). This book is a sheer delight to read. Brian Greene's clarity of thinking and joy of exploring the quest for the ultimate physics theory come clearly through as he describes how superstrings just might be the "common thread" that runs through this universe from the tiniest quantum bits to the largest relativistic by: Called by some "the theory of everything," superstrings may solve a problem which has eluded physicists for the past 50 years -- the final unification of the two great theories of the twentieth century, general relativity and quantum field theory/5.

The book begins with a simple discussion of point particle theory, and uses the Feynman path integral technique to unify the presentation of superstrings.

Prerequisites are an aquaintance with quantum mechanics and relativity. "The Conference on Superstrings and Particle Theory held at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa November"--Preface.

John Gribbin provides a brief, succinct, accessible overview of the hundred-year saga of particle physics, explaining everything from the basics (how subatomic particles work) to the cutting-edge research that has produced dazzling new models of the universe, among them the radical theories of "superstrings" — the hypothesis that particles Brand: Little, Brown and Company.

Superstrings and M-theory: provocative and controversial, but unarguably one of the most interesting and active areas of research in current physics. Called by some, "the theory of everything," superstrings may solve a problem that has eluded physicists for the past 50 years, the final unification of the two great theories of the twentieth century, general relativity and Reviews: 1.

Superstrings apparently solve a problem that has defied solution for the past 50 years, namely the unification of the two great fundamental physical theories of the century, quantum field theory and general relativity.1/5(1).

The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory is a book by Brian Greene published inwhich introduces string and superstring theory, and provides a comprehensive though non-technical assessment of the theory and some of its shortcomings.

Init won the Royal Society Prize for Science Books and was a finalist for Author: Brian Greene. To write a book to explain in simple, non-mathematical terms what superstring theory is is not a simple task.

In The Elegant Universe Brian Greene, a physicist who works in the area, does a very good job. Superstrings are a theory of particle physics that lays claim to being the ultimate "Theory of Everything", merging Einstein's relativity and quantum mechanics into an /5().

This book will be extremely boring for the layman who doesn’t have a grasp of science, with its revolutionary (and peculiar) scientific concepts (dimensional space, branes, M-theory and so on) This book is basically based on a theory aiming to become the Theory of Everything, superstring theory, and it does well to basically give an idea /5().

As an older book on String Theory, the author does a great job giving the history of particle physics in a way that a non-physicist can understand.

The book leaves off before the LHC kicked in but it's accurate and informative up to that point. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in understanding what string theory is and how it /5(54)."The Conference on Superstrings and Particle Theory held at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa November"--Pref.
