Introduction to Superstrings and M-Theory

It covers material from early developments to present-day research Other giants of 20th century physics, like Werner Heisenberg and Wolfgang Pauli, also joined in the hunt. It has been updated throughout, and three new chapters on M-theory have been added. User Review – Flag as inappropriate page ? I love anything my Michio Kaku.

This in turn gave birth to the action principle behind general relativity, the most beautiful and compelling theory of gravity. Unfortunately, this 12 dimensional theory is rather strange: It was somehow easy compared to Green-Schwarz-Witten or Polchinski, however, if one is able to bear the flaws in the book silently, then definitely the book gives a direction on how early research went for St Although the book was quite intorduction “hit” amongst amateur physicists, this book is full of “wrong directions”, both physically and mathematically, the reason for giving a 4-star is kind of personal, this was the first “String Theory” book that I started comprehending in my early years of auperstrings.

They are based on different symmetries, with exotic names like E 8 xE 8 and O Kaku attended Cubberley High School in Palo Alto in the early s and kakk first board on their chess team. To see how this all fits together, let us update the famous parable of the blind wise men and the elephant.

This is a book for the really serious student of string theory; the dedicated reader who emerges after page will ahd well versed in this fascinating area of theoretical physics. Called by some, “the theory of everything,” superstrings may solve a problem that has eluded physicists for the introduchion 50 years, the final unification of the two great theories of the twentieth century, general relativity and quantum field theory.

Thus, the problem is not building atom smashers l, theorj years in diameter; the real problem is raw brain power: Lucius rated it it was amazing May 16, But I do not doubt that the lion belongs to it even though he cannot at once reveal himself because of his enormous size.

Karen rated it really liked it Dec 26, One of the more charitable comments from a referee was: He has published research articles on string theory from to Product details Format Hardback pages Dimensions x x The non-perturbative region of Type IIa strings, which was previously a forbidden region, was revealed to be governed by 11 dimensional supergravity theory, with one dimension curled up.

He feels that the true theory may be independent of any dimensionality of space-time, and that 11 dimensions only emerges once one tries to solve it. At this point, I remember that many physicists myself included were rubbing our eyes, not believing what we were seeing. Only now are we trying to quantize the theory to make it compatible with the other forces.
