9780099488644: Not Even Wrong: The Failure of String Theory and the Continuing Challenge to Unify the Laws of Physics

Not Even Wrong is a fascinating exploration of our attempts to come to grips with perhaps the most intellectually demanding puzzle of all: how does the universe work at its most fundamnetal level?

The book begins with an historical survey of the experimental and theoretical developments that led to the creation of the phenomenally successful 'Standard Model' of particle physics around 1975. Despite its successes, the Standard Model does not answer all the key questions and physicists continuing search for answers led to the development of superstring theory. However, after twenty years, superstring theory has failed to advance beyond the Standard Model.

The absence of experimental evidence is at the core of this controversial situation which means that it is impossible to prove that superstring theory is either right or wrong. To date, only the arguments of the theory's advocates have received much publicity. Not Even Wrong provides readers with another side of the story.

Recensione:

"Highly readable, accessible and powerfully persuasive" (John Cornwell Sunday Times)

"Will embolden other string critics to speak up and encourage talented young physicists to pursue other lines of research" (John Horgan Prospect)

"Compulsive reading" (Roger Penrose)

"It's a call to arms" ( New Scientist)

Descrizione del libro:

'Peter Woit's book Not even Wrong is an authoritative and well reasoned account of string theory's extremely fashionable status among today's theoretical physicists...I regard it as an important book' - Professor Sir Roger Penrose, author of The Road to Reality.
