M-Theory: The Mother of all SuperStrings

No trivia or quizzes yet. But although Einstein was the first one to set off on this noble hunt and track the footprints left by the lion, he ultimately lost the trail and wandered off into the wilderness.

M-theory, moreover, may even force string theory to change its name. For example, point particles are 0-branes, strings are 1-branes, membranes are 2-branes, and so on.

But then one blind superstrngs goes beyond the tail and grabs onto the ear of the lion. Second Quantization and the Search for Geometry; 6. Product details Format Hardback pages Dimensions x x Kikkawa, he wrote the first paper on string field theory, now a major branch of string theory, which summarizes each of the five string theories into a single equation.

So the evolution of this theory can be summarized as: This revived tremendous interest in 11 dimensional theories and p- branes.


I asked some of the leaders in this field to respond to this question. But it marks a most significant breakthrough that is already reshaping the entire field. Umer Arshad rated it really liked it Jul 04, Michio Kaku is an American theoretical physicist at the City College of New Yorkbest-selling author, a futurist, and a kwku and popularizer of science.

Introduction to Superstrings and M-Theory

But since they are the same theory, we can use duality to solve for the non-perturbative region. One of the more charitable comments from a referee was: Unified Theories Limited preview.

Mesoscopic Physics of Complex Materials T. Superstrings and M-theory are provocative and controversial, but unarguably among the most interesting and active areas of introdction in current physics. Michael Duff, in fact, has collected a whole list of unflattering comments made by referees to his National Science Foundation grant concerning his work on p- branes.

Then Nathan Seiberg and Witten brilliantly showed how another form of duality could solve for the non-perturbative region in four dimensional supersymmetric theories.

In addition to his work on string field theory, he also authored some of the first papers on multi-loop amplitudes in string theory. Then try to use duality and M- theory to probe its non-perturbative region, seeing if the symmetries break in the correct fashion, giving us the correct masses of the quarks and other particles in the Standard Model.

In lower dimensions, there is xnd a whole zoo of super theories based on membranes in different dimensions. We will never share your email. Another duality, called U duality, was even more powerful.

Anomalies and the Atiyah-Singer Aand 9. Called by some, “the theory of everything,” superstrings may solve a problem that has eluded physicists for the past 50 years, the final unification of My library Help Advanced Book Search. Michio Kaku, click here.

Unification and Supersymmetry Rabindra N. M-theory and Duality; Although superstriings book was quite a “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 college.

Although physicists since Galileo knew this, Einstein was able to extract from this the Equivalence Principle. References to this book Unified Theories Limited preview.

This is now called T- duality: Lucius rated it it was amazing May 16,
