The Shape of Inner Space: String Theory and the Geometry of the Universe's Hidden Dimensions

Shing-Tung Yau, Steve Nadis


String conception says we are living in a ten-dimensional universe, yet that simply 4 are available to our daily senses. based on theorists, the lacking six are curled up in weird and wonderful constructions often called Calabi-Yau manifolds. In The form of internal Space, Shing-Tung Yau, the fellow who mathematically proved that those manifolds exist, argues that not just is geometry primary to thread conception, it's also primary to the very nature of our universe.

Time and back, the place Yau has long gone, physics has undefined. Now for the 1st time, readers will stick with Yau’s penetrating considering on the place we’ve been, and the place arithmetic will take us subsequent. a desirable exploration of an international we're merely simply commencing to take hold of, The form of internal Space will switch the way in which we think about the universe on either its grandest and smallest scales.
