Using his trademark wit and precision, greene presents a thrilling survey of cutting-edge physics and confronts the inevitable question: How can fundamental science progress if great swaths of reality lie beyond our reach? The Hidden Reality is a remarkable adventure through a world more vast and strange than anything we could have imagined.
The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos #ad - . Yet, a number of theories are converging on the possibility that our universe may be but one among many parallel universes populating a vast multiverse.

The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate TheoryW. W. Norton & Company #ad - Finally, the century-old antagonism between the large and the small-General Relativity and Quantum Theory-is resolved. A new edition of the new york times bestseller—now a three-part Nova special: a fascinating and thought-provoking journey through the mysteries of space, time, and matter. Now with a new preface not in any other edition that will review the enormous public reception of the relatively obscure string theory—made possible by this book and an increased number of adherents amongst physicists—The Elegant Universe "sets a standard that will be hard to beat" New York Times Book Review.
String theory, as it is often called, is the key to the Unified Field Theory that eluded Einstein for more than thirty years. String theory proclaims that all of the wondrous happenings in the universe, are reflections of one grand physical principle and manifestations of one single entity: microscopically tiny vibrating loops of energy, from the frantic dancing of subatomic quarks to the majestic swirling of heavenly galaxies, a billionth of a billionth the size of an atom.
The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory #ad - Brian greene, peels away the layers of mystery surrounding string theory to reveal a universe that consists of eleven dimensions, where the fabric of space tears and repairs itself, one of the world's leading string theorists, and all matter—from the smallest quarks to the most gargantuan supernovas—is generated by the vibrations of microscopically tiny loops of energy.
Today physicists and mathematicians throughout the world are feverishly working on one of the most ambitious theories ever proposed: superstring theory. In this brilliantly articulated and refreshingly clear book, Greene relates the scientific story and the human struggle behind twentieth-century physics' search for a theory of everything.
Through the masterful use of metaphor and analogy, The Elegant Universe makes some of the most sophisticated concepts ever contemplated viscerally accessible and thoroughly entertaining, bringing us closer than ever to understanding how the universe works.
