Physics World's 'Book of the Year' for 2016 An Entertaining and
Enlightening Guide to the Who, What, and Why of String Theory, now
also available in an updated reflowable electronic format
compatible with mobile devices and e-readers. During the last 50
years, numerous physicists have tried to unravel the secrets of
string theory. Yet why do these scientists work on a theory lacking
experimental confirmation? Why String Theory? provides the answer,
offering a highly readable and accessible panorama of the who,
what, and why of this large aspect of modern theoretical physics.
The author, a theoretical physics professor at the University of
Oxford and a leading string theorist, explains what string theory
is and where it originated. He describes how string theory fits
into physics and why so many physicists and mathematicians find it
appealing when working on topics from M-theory to monsters and from
cosmology to superconductors.
