Podcast: SciCafe: Adventures in Superstring Theory
by AMNH on
Theoretical physicist Dr. S. James Gates, Jr. uses mathematics to understand string theory and superstring theory, candidates for a single, unified theory of the universe. In this talk from a recent SciCafe, Dr. Gates describes the basics of string theory and talks about the discovery of computer codes—like those used in web browsers—embedded in the equations of superstring theory.
The SciCafe took place at the Museum on January 4, 2012.
