By Lárus Thorlacius,Thordur Jonsson

the elemental constitution of topic and spacetime on the shortest size scales continues to be an exhilarating frontier of uncomplicated examine in theoretical physics. A unifying subject matter during this sector is the quantization of geometrical items. the vast majority of lectures on the complicated research Institute on Quantum Ge­ ometry in Akureyri used to be on contemporary advances in superstring thought, that is the best candidate for a unified description of all identified hassle-free par­ ticles and interactions. The geometric proposal of one-dimensional prolonged items, or strings, has consistently been on the middle of superstring conception yet in recent times the point of interest has shifted to incorporate additionally higher-dimensional ob­ jects, so known as D-branes, which play a key function within the non-perturbative dynamics of the idea. A comparable improvement has obvious the powerful coupling regime of a given string concept pointed out with the vulnerable coupling regime of what was once previ­ ously believed to be a special concept, and an online of such" dualities" that interrelates all identified superstring theories has emerged. The ensuing uni­ fied theoretical framework, termed M-theory, has developed at a fast speed in contemporary years.

Dyson Quantenfeldtheorie: Die weltbekannte Einführung von einem der Väter der QED (German Edition)

Die berühmte Vorlesung von Freeman Dyson - nun erstmals auf Deutsch. In den 1940er Jahren zeigte Freeman Dyson die Äquivalenz zwischen den beiden Formulierungen der QED - des Pfadintegralansatzes von Richard Feynman und der Variationsmethoden von Julian Schwinger - und bewies somit die Konsistenz der QED.
