Latest String theory Stories
Two USC researchers have proposed a link between string field theory and quantum mechanics that could open the door to using string field theory — or a broader version of it, called M-theory — as the basis of all physics.
When most scientists discuss string theory, they aren’t referring to the physics behind the distinctive lead guitar techniques of Eric Clapton or Jimi Hendrix, but that’s exactly what one Oxford University researcher examines in a new PLOS ONE study.
Dan Cheetham and Michelle Tarsney of Fyoog explore the ethereal effect of overlapping strings of primary colors while simultaneously engaging coworkers. Austin,
UC Santa Barbara physicist Tarun Grover has provided definitive mathematical evidence for supersymmetry in a condensed matter system.
Dark matter, the mysterious substance that comprises more than 85 percent of the universe, is unlikely to be made of primordial black holes due to the existence of neutron stars.
Pixidis researcher Tom Whitney of Minneapolis has achieved the Holy Grail quest of modern physical science: the discovery of Einstein's famed unified field equation.
A superfluid moves like a completely frictionless liquid, seemingly able to propel itself without any hindrance from gravity or surface tension.
Del Monte Gives His Perspective of M-Theory and Its Importance to Science Minneapolis, Minnesota (PRWEB) May 09, 2013 Author, physicist and CEO, Louis
Black holes are incredibly difficult objects to understand, partially because their very existence seemingly challenges the physical laws of the Universe. Because of their extreme nature, various peculiarities arise that give scientists pause.
Foundations of Physics is a monthly-published journal devoted to the conceptual bases and fundamental theories of modern physics and cosmology, emphasizing the logical, methodological, and philosophical premises of modern physical theories and procedures. The journal publishes results and observations based on fundamental questions from all major fields of physics: quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, special relativity, general relativity, string theory, M-theory, cosmology,...
String Theory -- A string theory is a physical model whose fundamental building blocks are extended objects (strings, membranes and higher-dimensional objects) rather than points. String theories are able to avoid problems, such as infinite energy density, associated with the presence of mathematical points in a physical theory. The term 'string theory' properly refers to both the 26 dimensional bosonic string theories and to the 10 dimensional superstring theories discovered by...
M-Theory -- 'M-Theory' is the name of the unknown theory of everything which would combine all five Superstring theories and the Supergravity at 11 dimensions together. The theory requires mathematical tools which have yet to be invented in order to be fully understood. The theory was proposed by Edward Witten. The following article is somewhat technical in nature, see M-theory simplified for a less technical article. M-theory's relation to superstrings and supergravity...
