In Our Mathematical Universe, Max Tegmark, one of the most original physicists at work today, leads us on an astonishing journey to explore the mysteries uncovered by cosmology and to discover the nature of realityPart history of the cosmos, part intellectual adventure, Our Mathematical Universe travels from the Big Bang to the distant future via parallel worlds, across every possible scale from the sub atomic to the intergalactic showing how mathematics provides the answers to our questions about the world Where do we come from What makes the universe the way it is In essence, why are we here With dazzling clarity, Max Tegmark ponders these deep mysteries and allows us to grasp the most cutting edge and mind boggling theories of physics What he proposes is an elegant and fascinating idea that our physical world not only is described by mathematics, but that it is mathematicsOur Mathematical Universe is nothing if not impressive Brilliantly argued and beautifully written, it is never less than thought provoking about the greatest mysteries of our existence New York TimesAn amazing ride through the rich landscape of contemporary cosmology Physics could do withcharacters like Tegmark an imaginative intellect and a charismatic presence Clive Cookson, Financial Times Max Tegmark is author or co author ofthantechnical papers, twelve of which have been citedthantimes He has featured in dozens of science documentaries, and his work with the SDSS collaboration on galaxy clustering shared the first prize in Science magazine sBreakthrough of the YearHe holds a PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, and is a physics professor at MIT
