The elegant universe by B Greene( Visual )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Physicist Brian Greene discusses the historical quest for a grand unified theory in physics which will reconcile quantum physics and general relativity, and considers the possibility that superstring theory may bring an end to that search
Space, time, and the universe( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Host Brian Greene, professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University and best-selling author, takes viewers on an exciting and in-depth exploration of a groundbreaking new theory: One of the most ambitious and exciting scientific theories ever posed, and one that may be the long-sought 'Theory of Everything.'
The elegant universe : Einstein's dream( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program introduces string theory and shows how modern physics - composed of two theories that are ferociously incompatible - reached its schizophrenic impasse. One theory, general relativity, successfully describes the stars and galaxies, while another, quantum mechanics, is equally successful at explaining small things like atoms and subatomic particles. Albert Einstein, the inventor of general relativity, dreamed of finding a single theory that would embrace all of nature's laws. But in this quest for the so-called "unified" theory, Einstein came up empty-handed, and the conflict between general relativity and quantum mechanics has stymied all who've followed. That is, until the discovery of string theory
The Elegant Universe : String's the Thing( Visual )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program opens with a whimsical scene in a movie theater in which the history of the universe trails backwards to the big bang, the moment at which general relativity and quantum mechanics both come into play, and therefore the point at which our conventional model of reality breaks down. Then it's string theory to the rescue as physicist Bryan Greene describes the serendipitous steps that led from a forgotten 200-year-old mathematical formula to the first glimmerings of strings - quivering strands of energy whose different vibrations give rise to quarks, electrons, photons, and all other elementary particles. As Greene explains, scientists are able, for the first time, to combine the laws of the large and the small into a harmonious theory of everything. But even with its success, as of the 1990s, physicists realized that the "strings" theory suffered from a pernicious flaw - there were five different versions. A new question was now on the rise: we have one universe, so shouldn't there be one theory of everything?
The fabric of the cosmos by B Greene( Visual )

Physicist Brian Greene, host of the acclaimed series The Elegant Universe, returns with a mind-blowing, new exploration of space, time, and the very nature of reality
The elegant universe( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Physicist Bryan Greene's bestselling book comes to the small screen in this stimulating look at a complicated topic: the search for order in the universe. Is a revolutionary proposal--"string theory"--The answer scientists have been seeking for centuries? Greene tackles the mind-boggling complexity of the theory with vivid, clear images, and calmly points the way to the answer

What is Space?( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Space - it separates you from me, one galaxy from the next, and atoms from one another. It is everywhere in the universe. But to most of us, space is nothing, an empty void. Well, it turns out space is not what it seems. From the passenger seat of a New York cab driving near the speed of light, to a pool hall where billiard tables do fantastical things, Brian Greene reveals space as a dynamic fabric that can stretch, twist, warp, and ripple under the influence of gravity

The Elegant Universe : Welcome to the 11th Dimension( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

String theory calls for at least ten dimensions in order for its rather abstruse mathematics to remain consistent. However, in 1995, Edward Witten of Princeton's Institute for Advanced Study, revolutionized string theory by successfully uniting the five different versions into a single theory, cryptically named "M-theory". It was a development requiring a total of eleven dimensions. In this program, we explore how this new dimension is different from all the others, as it implies that strings can come in higher dimensional shapes called membranes, or "branes" for short. Having truly science-fiction-like qualities, branes can be as large as the universe - or even present as a parallel universe - one we may be living on one right now. It is one of the most startling views at our existence through the curious lens of physics
