The String Theory in The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene

- The string theory means that everything exists because of Planck vibrating strings; these strings are the source of every object in the universe, including the unknown. This theory also speculates whether or not other dimensions and parallel universes exist. In The Elegant Universe, Brian Greene explains the different concepts of the string theory and its origins. Among these are the the theory of dimensions, parallel universes, and the origin of the universe. The string theory is an interesting theory because it contributes the the idea that there are many things in the universe that are yet to be discovered....   [tags: String, Cosmic, Dimensions]

Evaluation of Books on String Theory

- A String Method Book Evaluation Three different methods books; “Muller Rusch String Method,” “Action with Strings,” and “ Essential Elements for strings,” revealed three very different approaches to learning. The influence of time is greatly noticeable in comparing and contrasting these three approaches. “Essential Elements for Strings” was published in 1994 and the other two books in the 1960’s. After many years of studying education the approach to teaching students how to play an instrument has greatly improved....   [tags: String Method Theory Music]

The String Theory

- Sub-atomic particles, known as quarks, electrons, photons, and neutrinos were strewn across expanding space. Equal amounts of matter and antimatter particles began to collide and annihilate each other. Gravity, strong and weak nuclear forces, and electromagnetic forces soon came into play. As the universe started to cool, fundamental particles called quarks began to smash together forming protons and neutrons. They, in turn, merged to create the nuclei of simple elements, beginning with hydrogen, helium, and lithium....   [tags: Creation, Anti-matter, Physics]

Already champions of new music and fresh approaches, the Brooklyn, NY-based group stretch the boundaries of the classic quartet, adding unusual instruments and other forms of art to the mix.” This was clearly the case in the recent concert that Brooklyn Rider preformed as a part of the University of South Carolina’s Southern Exposure series....   [tags: Music, Rock music, Art, Philip Glass]

String Theory

- What is string theory and what does it mean for human kind. String theory is a theory that seeks to unify the four forces of nature and explain the origins of our universe. Before the string theory, it was impossible to combine the theories of General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. By using tiny vibrating strings of energy that are 10-33 m in length, scientists can create all the fundamental particles we’ve started to find using particle accelerators. Then, using these particles they can try to unite the two different theories and create a universe that is perhaps, more perfect than the Standard Model will allow....   [tags: Physics Essays]
