Superstring Theory

Posted by C Moon on December 7, 2007

Though Quantum Mechanics and Theory of Relativity describe well the nature from the micro and macro perspectives, respectively, they fail to coexist, or fail to explain the other side. Super-string Theory is one of the attempts to explain all the particles and fundamental forces of nature in a unified theory by modeling them as vibrations of tiny super-symmetric strings. Detailed explanation can be found in the 3-hour-long lecture from PBS. (They designed this lecture based on Brian Green’s fascinating book, The Elegant Universe.)

The model requires us to recognize up to the 11th dimension. We live in the 4-dimension world, with length, width, height, and time, the first three of which we can control and the last of which we cannot control. Exploring the internet, I was able to find a video describing up to the 10th dimension. I hope this video will enhance your understanding of the current state of the super-string theory.
