Resumo:
The purpose of this book is to convey to the reader some feeling for ... the search for the underlying principles that govern the behaviour of our universe.... It may be said that this book is really about the relation between mathematics and physics, and how the interplay between the two strongly influences those drives that underlie our searches for a better theory of the universe.... This book may indeed be used  Ler mais...
