Bearing in mind the continual game of leapfrog going on between math and physics, and that the latest leap is physics' string theory, which requires a new type of math, Kaku mischievously suggests that the ultimate solution to the schism between physicists and Mathematicians could be that God is a ...
Among Professor Polchinski's "most profound contributions", Professor Marolf went on, were "a better understanding of how the properties of a quantum field theory depend on the length scale at which the theory is probed; the discovery that string theory contains so-called D-brane degrees of freedom with ...

ONE of west Dorset's finest is bringing his solo tour to the town he used to call home. Phil Beer of Show of Hands fame will be performing string theory at Bridport Town Hall on Saturday, March 17. This year looks set to be a different yet very special year for Phil. The string theory tour will feature material ...
Dr. Polchinski was a giant force in the development of string theory, the ambitious attempt to achieve a "theory of everything," which envisions the fundamental particles of nature as tiny wriggling strings. The theory has brought forth ideas and calculations that have opened new fields of study and new ...
Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of the latest episode of string theory, starring John Petrucci. Watch it above! A web series created by Ernie Ball, string theory explores the sonic origins of influential and innovative musicians. In the episode, Petrucci discusses his beginnings with ...
CARROLL: So string theory is a simple idea. Instead of little particles like electrons and quarks, if we were to look closely at them, we would see they were little loops of string. It's an old idea from the '60s and '70s. But in the 1980s it really caught fire, and that was the first superstring revolution. And people ...

string theory was hoped for to be that revolution in the 1980s but it hasn't really panned out in the sense that it hasn't given a single prediction. Instead it's given us a huge collection of theories where, if you like, there's no overarching theory to tell which particular version of string theory is the one that ...
It may originate from particles called gravitons, which would be carriers of gravity much like how photons carry electromagnetism. Quantum gravity and string theory have their own bends. The results of this experiment could help us sort quantum gravity out, and perhaps lead to a final theory, at which time, ...
That's a new approach to standard string theory, which is roughly defined as the belief that "all elementary particles are manifestations of the vibrations of one-dimensional ... In a talk titled "Beyond 2018" at the Integrated Systems Europe conference, Kaku admits his string theory has some serious knots in it.
They couldn't care less that Sheldon wants some alone time with string theory. He is miserable to live with, plus any privacy would be a thing of the past. The guy doesn't understand boundaries. When Sheldon proves he can be quiet by hiding in his old room working for hours without the Hofstadters ...
Through a partnership with string theory, the management of the Tomorrow Building will host a free concert by WindSync on Monday, Jan. 22. The Tomorrow Building is located at 818 Georgia Ave. The program will begin at 6 p.m. for a half-hour of music followed by wine, cheese and meeting the ...
Parallel universes are a great storytelling device, allowing us to see interesting versions of our favorite characters. They're also at the core of the Arrowverse, the shared universe of DC-based superheroes currently airing on the CW. While the main characters occasionally come together for epic crossover ...
... and her common sense (something that is sometimes lacking with the brilliant Dr. Cooper) has on more than one occasion led Sheldon to both personal and professional insights. She doesn't really "solve" string theory, as she later claims to Leonard and Amy, but she certainly is key in helping Sheldon ...
Sheldon reminisces about his days with string theory and elegantly teaches Penny the basics. He also admits that people have been stuck on string theory for decades and Penny immediately taps out since even Einstein couldn't figure it out, which makes perfect sense since strings just get all knotted up ...
string theory, in partnership with Lee University and the Hunter Museum of American Art, will host its annual Family Concert on Saturday, Jan. 20, at 1 p.m. at the museum. The concert will feature a special performance with WindSync presenting an interactive and educational retelling of Sergei Prokofiev's ...
It's cold out there, which makes January a rough month for Nashville businesses. But one local business owner has taken it upon himself to make the month a bit cozier -- with ukuleles. The Brown County Ukulele Festival will take place Jan. 26 to 28 at the Brown County Inn. It's sponsored by Mainland ...
On Tuesday, January 23 (yes, it's 2018 already), Oklahoma City's Brightmusic Chamber Ensemble will present the third concert of its 2017-18 season, "string theory." Although this is not physics, although you might hear, in the course of the lovely sounds, the music of the spheres. The evening of excellent ...

Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of the latest episode of string theory, starring Robin Finck of Nine Inch Nails. A web series created by Ernie Ball, string theory explores the sonic origins of influential and innovative musicians. In the episode, Finck discusses his beginnings with ...
In fact, the data that arise in string theory may be some of the largest in science. For example, in a region of the landscape known as type IIb, it was originally estimated that there are 10500 vacua arising from different choices of fluxes, which has recently exploded to 10272,000. It is now known that there are ...
string theory (or, more technically, M-theory) is often described as the leading candidate for the theory of everything in our universe. But there's no empirical evidence for it, or for any alternative ideas about how gravity might unify with the rest of the fundamental forces. Why, then, is string/M-theory given the ...
Eventually, as he worked to finish his giant two-volume textbook on string theory, he took to simply closing his door and pretending he wasn't in the office. Once the book was finished, however, the door was open again, and the constant stream of visitors resumed. Joe died at his home last week, age 63, ...
One of the most important dualities is called the AdS/CFT correspondence (the anti-de Sitter/conformal field theory correspondence), which is a proposed relationship between two theories: on the one hand quantum gravity, formulated on M and string theory, and on the other hand, quantum field theories ...
The professor, whose research is focused on things like string theory and gravity, worked on the book off and on for almost two decades. Some of that time was spent teaching ... is the origin of space and time? These days I spend a lot of my time thinking about quantum gravity, string theory and black holes.
Of all the people who work on string theory here, I am very much interested in quantum field theory. A lot of that was motivated by string theory. A lot of work I do now has been a part of the work I've done on string theory, but a lot of the problems I solve today can be explained and answered without ever ...

From string theory to brane universes, Lisa Randall has studied the most exotic properties of the cosmos. In 2016, she wrote Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs, a theoretical tour de force which explored the possibility that a disc of dark matter, an elusive type of particle, might have caused the extinction of the ...
string theory, in partnership with Lee University and the Hunter Museum of American Art, will continue its ninth season with a performance featuring violinist Philip Setzer, cellist Edward Arron, and pianist Gloria Chien. The concert will take place on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. at the museum. The evening's ...
This probably all sounds fantastical; something that couldn't happen in reality. As far as experimentally verified physics is concerned, that's true. There are theories, though, that indicate there could be additional dimensions of reality yet undiscovered. Perhaps the best-known example of this is string theory.
Want to understand string theory in 20 minutes? Listen to Brian Greene. The theoretical physicist has the handy knack of explaining the seemingly unexplainable, taking science out of its academic comfort-zone and into the general public. As co-founder of the yearly World Science Festival, Greene is ...
M-theory incorporates within a single mathematical structure all five versions of string theory, which renders the elements of nature as minuscule vibrating strings. These five string theories connect to each other through "dualities," or mathematical equivalences. Over the past 30 years, Witten and others ...
During a yearlong fellowship at the University of Turin in Italy, John Michael Kosterlitz was working on a particular physics model--a precursor to string theory. Just as he was about to submit his research to an academic journal, another research group at a different university beat him to the punch. Kosterlitz ...
The leverlike guitar accessory known as a whammy bar is best used to bend and distort a single note--think Jimi Hendrix's famous rendition of the Star Spangled Banner from Woodstock 1969. But it doesn't sound very nice if used when playing multiple strings simultaneously, such as when strumming a ...
