Physics of the future : how science will shape human destiny and our daily lives by the year 2100 by Michio Kaku( Book )

33 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 2,712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Physics of the impossible : a scientific exploration into the world of phasers, force fields, teleportation, and time travel by Michio Kaku( Book )

28 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 2,625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One hundred years ago, scientists would have said that lasers, televisions, and the atomic bomb were beyond the realm of physical possibility. Here, physicist Michio Kaku explores to what extent the technologies and devices of science fiction that are deemed equally impossible today might well become commonplace in the future. From teleportation to telekinesis, Kaku uses the world of science fiction to explore the fundamentals--and the limits--of the laws of physics as we know them today. He ranks the impossible technologies by categories--Class I, II, and III--depending on when they might be achieved, within the next century, millennia, or perhaps never. He uses his discussion of each technology as a jumping-off point to explain the science behind it.--From publisher description

10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In collaboration with 300 of the world's top scientists, author Michio Kaku predicts how current science will radically shape the future. Among his predictions are: the Internet will be able to recognize faces and translate languages in real time, people will be able to control computers through tiny brain implants, clothing will be able to monitor vital signs, and space exploration will boom with the advent of laser propulsion
The future of the mind : [the scientific quest to understand, enhance, and empower the mind] by Michio Kaku( Recording )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first time in history, the secrets of the living brain are being revealed by a battery of high tech brain scans devised by physicists. Now what was once solely the province of science fiction has become a startling reality. Recording memories, telepathy, videotaping our dreams, mind control, avatars, and telekinesis are not only possible; they already exist
Quantum field theory : a modern introduction by Michio Kaku( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This lucid introduction to modern quantum field theory fills the need for a text that details the basics of field theory as well as the practical and theoretical implications of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and the Standard Model."--Back cover
Beyond Einstein : the cosmic quest for the theory of the universe by Michio Kaku( Book )

2 editions published between 1987 and 1995 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beyond Einstein takes readers on an exciting excursion into the discoveries that have led scientists to the brightest new prospect in theoretical physics today -- superstring theory. What is superstring theory and why is it important? This revolutionary breakthrough may well be the fulfillment of Albert Einstein's lifelong dream of a Theory of Everything, uniting the laws of physics into a single description explaining all the known forces in the universe
Introduction to superstrings and M-theory by Michio Kaku( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and Japanese and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Superstrings - provocative, controversial, possibly untestable, but unarguably one of the most interesting and active areas of research in current physics. Called by some, "the theory of everything", superstrings may solve a problem which has eluded physicists for the past 50 years - the final unification of the two great theories of the twentieth century, general relativity and quantum field theory. Now, here is a course-tested comprehensive introductory graduate text on superstrings which stresses the most current areas of interest, not covered in other presentation, including: - string field theory - multi loops - Teichmueller spaces - conformal field theory - four-dimensional strings The book begins with a simple discussion of point particle theory, and uses the Feynman path integral technique to unify the presentation of superstrings. Prerequisites are an aquaintance with quantum mechanics and relativity. This second edition has been revised and updated throughout

"String theory (and its latest incarnation, M-theory) has advanced at an astonishing pace in the last decade, and this book aims to acquaint the reader with the most active topics of research in the field. Building on the foundations laid in his Introduction to Superstrings and M-Theory, Kaku discusses such topics as conformal field theory, knot theory, the Yang-Baxter relation, quantum groups, nonpolynomial string field theory, topological field theory, S-T-U dualities, D-branes, and M-theory. The book conveys the vitality of current research in string theory and M-theory and places the reader at its forefront."--Jacket
