Beschreibung

No scientific quest is as compelling as the search for the key to understand the universethe elusive unified Theory of Everythinga theory so concise it could fit on a T-shirt. Lively and thought-provoking, Universe on a T-Shirt tells the fascinating story of the search for the Holy Grail of physics.Dan Falk places this intriguing story in its historical context, tracing the quest from ancient Greece to the breakthroughs of Newton, Maxwell, and Einstein, to the excitement over string theory and todays efforts to merge quantum theory with general relativity. With as much emphasis on history as on science, Falks accessible approach is ideal for anyone intrigued by the advances in modern physics but still wondering what theoretical physicists are searching for, and why. Todays physicists use sophisticated methods, but their goalthe search for simplicityhas not changed since the time of the ancient Greeks.

[that] offers intriguing insights into the philosophic and personal outlooks motivating the scientists involved, from the ancient Greeks through Newton and Einstein . . . [and] Stephen Hawking and Ed Witten.Booklist
