    Description de "The Trouble With Physics: The Rise of String Theory, the Fall of a Science, and What Comes Next"

    In this groundbreaking book, the renowned theoretical physicist Lee Smolin argues that physics — the basis for all other sciences — has lost its way. For more than two centuries, our understanding of the laws of nature expanded rapidly. But today, despite our best efforts, we know nothing more about these laws than we knew in the 1970s. Why is physics suddenly in trouble? And what can we do about it?One of the major problems, according to Smolin, is string theory: an ambitious attempt to formulate a “theory of everything” that explains all the particles and forces of nature and how the universe came to be. With its exotic new particles and parallel universes, string theory has captured the public’s imagination and seduced many physicists. But as Smolin reveals, there’s a deep flaw in the theory: no part of it has been tested, and no one knows how to test it. In fact, the theory appears to come in an infinite number of versions, meaning that no experiment will ever be able to prove it false. As a scientific theory, it fails. And because it has soaked up the lion’s share of funding, attracted some of the best minds, and effectively penalized young physicists for pursuing other avenues, it is dragging the rest of physics down with it.With clarity, passion, and authority, Smolin charts the rise and fall of string theory and takes a fascinating look at what will replace it. A group of young theorists has begun to develop exciting ideas that, unlike string theory, are testable. Smolin not only tells us who and what to watch for in the coming years, he offers novel solutions for seeking out and nurturing the best new talent—giving us a chance, at long last, of finding the next Einstein.

    Rien ne va plus en physique !

    Depuis quelques décennies, une théorie merveilleuse enthousiasme les physiciens : la théorie des cordes, qui stipule (en bref) que les particules élémentaires - électrons, quarks, etc. - ne seraient pas ponctuelles mais semblables à de minuscules cordes vibrantes : chaque vibration [....]...

    Rien ne va plus en physique ! : L'échec de la théorie des cordes

    " La théorie des cordes n'a pas tenu ses promesses ", affirme Lee Smolin qui fut pourtant lui-même partisan de cette approche. En effet, après plus de vingt ans de mobilisation des esprits et des crédits de recherche, parfois au détriment d'autres domaines de la physique, la théorie des cordes...

    Three Roads to Quantum Gravity

    It's difficult, writes Lee Smolin in this lucid overview of modern physics, to talk meaningfully about the big questions of space and time, given the limitations of our technology and perceptions. It's more difficult still given some of the contradictions and inconsistencies that obtain between quan...

    The Trouble with Physics: The Rise of String Theory, the Fall of a Science and What Comes Next

    The Trouble with Physics is a groundbreaking account of the state of modern physics: of how we got from Einstein and Relativity through quantum mechanics to the strange and bizarre predictions of string theory, full of unseen dimensions and multiple universes. Lee Smolin not only provides a brillian...
