The elegant universe by B Greene( Visual )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,795 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 233 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 )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 127 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 70 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 small into a harmonious theory of everything. But even with its success, as of the 1990's, 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 29 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( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 6 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 1 WorldCat member library 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
