Warped Passages

Unravelling the Universe's Hidden Dimensions

Lisa Randall

An essential and accessible introduction to the science of the future.

Warped Passages gives an incredible glimpse into the future. Lisa Randall has pushed back the boundaries of science and in this brilliantly readable account - illustrated throughout - she introduces the world of extra dimensions. She describes the kind of speculation that is needed even to imagine them. And she allows us to understand the problems that they explain and the questions that are still left wide open. Warped Passages also gives an overview of developments in early twentieth century physics, particle physics and string theory and addresses current debates about relativity, quantum mechanics and gravity. It is exhilarating reading.

Lisa Randall is a leading theoretical physicist and expert on string theory and has had chairs at MIT and Harvard. She works on one of the main two competing models of string theory in the quest to explain the fabric of reality.
