Superstrings by P. C. W. Davies

Book Description

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. A clear, concise, non-mathematical explanation of the theory and its profound implications is followed by transcripts of interviews with all the most important physicists involved in its development. Superstrings makes a fascinating topic at the forefront of modern scientific research accessible to physicists, philosophers and general readers alike.

Books By Author P. C. W. Davies

About Time by P. C. W. Davies About Time, Paperback (April 1996)

When Albert Einstein formulated his theory of relativity it brought about a revolution in our understanding of time, yet also presented a new set of mysteries. In this book, the author tackles the tough questions about time, including the strange relationship between physical time and our psychological perception of it.

Ghost in the Atom by P. C. W. Davies Ghost in the Atom, Paperback (July 1993)

In this book, which has its origin in a series of radio broadcasts, Paul Davies interviews eight physicists involved in debating and testing quantum theory, with radically different views of its significance.

Mind of God by P. C. W. Davies Mind of God, Paperback (February 1993)

Is the universe - and our place in it - the result of random chance, or is there an ultimate meaning to existence? Where did the laws of nature come from? Were they created by a higher force, or can they be explained in some other way? This book explores how modern science is beginning to shed light on the mysteries of our existence.

God and the New Physics by P. C. W. Davies God and the New Physics, Paperback (October 1990)

Explains how the far-reaching discoveries of physics are revolutionizing our world and, in particular, throwing light on many of the questions formerly posed by religion, such as: Why is there a universe? Where did we come from? What is life? How is the world organized?
