A Brief History of String Theory: From Dual Models to by Dean Rickles PDF

By Dean Rickles

During its 40 12 months lifespan, string concept has constantly had the ability to divide, being known as either a 'theory of every thing' and a 'theory of nothing'. Critics have even wondered no matter if it qualifies as a systematic concept in any respect. This publication adopts an aim stance, status again from the query of the truth or falsity of string conception and as a substitute targeting the way it got here to be and the way it got here to occupy its current place in physics. An without warning wealthy heritage is published, with deep connections to our so much well-established actual theories. totally self-contained and written in a full of life type, the booklet will attract a wide selection of readers from amateur to specialist.
