The shape of inner space : string theory and the geometry of the universe's hidden dimensions by Shing-Tung Yau( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

String theory says we live in a ten-dimensional universe, but that only four are accessible to our everyday senses. According to theorists, the missing six are curled up in bizarre structures known as Calabi-Yau manifolds. Here, Shing-Tung Yau, the man who mathematically proved that these manifolds exist, argues that not only is geometry fundamental to string theory, it is also fundamental to the very nature of our universe. Time and again, where Yau has gone, physics has followed. Now for the first time, readers will follow Yau's penetrating thinking on where we've been, and where mathematics will take us next. A fascinating exploration of a world we are only just beginning to grasp, The Shape of Inner Space will change the way we consider the universe on both its grandest and smallest scales.--From publisher description
Car trouble by Steven J Nadis( Book )

Main description: In the twentieth century, mathematicians at Harvard University trailblazed a distinctly American tradition in algebraic geometry and topology, complex analysis, number theory, and other esoteric fields. Written in accessible prose, A History in Sum takes a close look at the contributions to higher mathematics of these extraordinary minds
From the Great Wall to the Great Collider : China and the quest to uncover the inner workings of the universe by Steven J Nadis( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 2012 discovery of the Higgs boson was a sensational triumph--the culmination of a 48-year-long search that put the finishing touches on the so-called "Standard Model" of particle physics. While the celebrations were still underway, researchers in China were making plans to continue the centuries-old quest to identify the fundamental building blocks of nature. More specifically, they began laying the groundwork for a giant accelerator-up to 100 kilometers in circumference-that would transport physics into a previously inaccessible, high-energy realm where a host of new particles, and perhaps a sweeping new symmetry, might be found. The case for such an instrument is compelling: Even though the Standard Model can describe the behavior of particles with astounding accuracy, it is incomplete. The theory has little to say about the Big Bang, gravity, dark matter, dark energy, and other far-reaching topics. This book explains how an ambitious new machine-on the scale of China's proposed "Great Collider"-could provide us with a fuller understanding of the origins of our universe and its most basic constituents"--
