The elegant universe by B Greene ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,815 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
The elegant universe Einstein's dream ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 92 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 ( )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 38 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 ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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 ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 5 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
