Thank you! Physics for the sophisticated but nontechnical, maybe. Krauss is a theoretical physicist who teaches one of those physics-for-poets courses at Yale. This volume, though, is a lofty view of certain unifying themes with particular reference to particle physics and quantum mechanics. The first section deals with process, describing how physicists work by excluding the irrelevant.

The Greatest Story Ever Told - So Far
I received undergraduate degrees in mathematics and physics from Carleton University, and my Ph. In we inaugurated this this initiative with the Origins Symposium [www. My research focuses on the beginning and end of the Universe. Among my contributions to the field of cosmology, I helped lead the search for dark matter, and first proposed the existence of dark energy in Journal, Scientific American for which I wrote a regular column , and other magazines, as well as doing extensive work on radio and television I have a monthly science segment on Arizona PBS Horizon , and most recently in feature films.
