Time Travel( Visual )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carl Sagan and Kip Thorne postulate how time travel might one day be possible if an advanced civilization were able to harness and manipulate theoretical tunnels through space and time known as "wormholes."
Einstein's dream( Visual )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nuts, bolts and sometimes outright nuttiness of string theory, also known as superstring theory. Shows how modern physics reached its schizophrenic impasse
The elegant universe by B Greene( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uitleg van de zogenoemde snaartheorie, waarmee wordt getracht de relativiteitstheorie, de kwantummechanica en de theorie van elementaire deeltjes met elkaar te verzoenen
String's the thing( Visual )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opens with a whimsical scene in a movie theatre in which the history of the universe is run 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 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 quaks, electrons, photons, and all other elementary particles - Strings are truly tiny, being smaller than an atom by the same factor that a tree is smaller then the solar system - SCIENCE - VID 2903; Recorded on 6/12/2004
Welcome to the 11th Dimension( Visual )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bestselling author physicist Brian Green presents this lavishly computer-animated three part documentary seris - The final episode focuses on the M-theory. In 1995 Edward Witten, aided by others from Princeton's Institute for Advanced Study, revolutionised string theory by successfully uniting the five different versions into a single theory - This is the cryptically named M-theory, a development which required a total of 11 dimensions - The 11th dimension is different from all the others, since it implies that strings can come in higher dimensional shapes called membranes, or "branes' for short - these have truly science-fiction-like qualities, since in principle they can be as large as the universe
The elegant universe( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A three part series about string theory, physics, and the theory of everything. Episode one introduces string theory and shows how modern physics, being composed of two theories that are ferociously incompatible, reached its schizophrenic impasse. One theory, known as general relativity, is fantastically successful at describing big things like stars and galaxies, and another, called quantum mechanics, is equally successful at describing small things like atoms and subatomic particles. Episode two opens with a scene where the history of the universe in run 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. The serendipitous steps are described that led from a forgotton 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. The conflicting laws of the universe can possibly be resolved using string theory
The elegant universe( Visual )

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

Could tiny strings vibrating in eleven dimensions be the ultimate explanation for everything? 'The Theory of Everything', the nuts and bolts of physics, is one of the most ambitious and exciting theories every proposed, and one that eluded even Einstein. Bestselling author-physicist Brian Green presents 'The Elegant Universe', a lavishly computer-animated three-part documentary series. If string theory proves correct, the universe we see obscures a reality that is far more rich and subtle than anyone ever imagined, a universe with numerous hidden dimensions, a universe in which the fabric of space can tear, a universe that may be but one of many parallel universes ceaselessly popping in and out of existence throughout eternity.
