Summary:
"For decades, physicists have been fascinated with the possibility that two seemingly independent aspects of our world - matter and force - may in fact be intimately connected and inseparable facets of nature. This idea, known as supersymmetry, is considered by many physicists to be one of the most beautiful and elegant theories ever conceived."

Abstract:

"For decades, physicists have been fascinated with the possibility that two seemingly independent aspects of our world - matter and force - may in fact be intimately connected and inseparable facets of nature. This idea, known as supersymmetry, is considered by many physicists to be one of the most beautiful and elegant theories ever conceived." "Nature's Blueprint explores the reasons why supersymmetry is so integral to how we understand our world and describes the incredible machines used in the search for it. In an engaging and accessible style, it gives readers a glimpse into the symmetries, patterns, and very structure behind the universe and its laws."--BOOK JACKET.
