Peter Woit is an American theoretical physicist. He is a Senior Lecturer in the Mathematics department at Columbia University. Woit is a critic of string theory has published a book Not Even Wrong, and Fields: Theoretical physics. Not Even Wrong Peter Woit argues that string theory isn't just going in the. I am glad that he did not dumb down the physics too much in the book;. The latest Tweets from Not Even Wrong (@notevenwrong): "New post: Scholze and Stix on the Mochizuki Proof ~woit/wordpress.

Someone else in the audience Iosif Bena? The source of the damage is actually different books, the ones promoting the multiverse, for example this one. But the underlying problem is the takeover of string theory by multiverse pseudo-science, not that I and Lee Smolin criticized it.

A striking fact about the Stony Brook workshop is that none of the participants were from Stanford, and none of the many prominent figures responsible for promoting KKLT were there. The book begins with an historical survey of the experimental and theoretical developments that led to the creation of the phenomenally successful so-called 'Standard Model' of particle physics around Despite its successes, the Standard Model does not answer all questions that one not even wrong peter woit expect it to address, and for the last thirty years physicists have been trying to come up with a better theory.

For the last eighteen years particle theory has not even wrong peter woit dominated by a single approach to the unification of the Standard Model interactions and quantum gravity. This line of thought has hardened into a new orthodoxy that postulates an unknown fundamental supersymmetric theory involving strings and other degrees of freedom with characteristic scale around the Planck length.

Unfortunately since it defies the intention of Peter's book I'd also say Brian Greene's 'Elegant Universe' is a much more elegant introduction into the basic concepts.

Furthermore, I myself do appreciate the use of technical terms and mentioning of mathematical abstractions, because not even wrong peter woit interested reader will have it much easier to build up on it.

In this regard, the references given at the end of each not even wrong peter woit are also very useful. I do appreciate this because I had to read an enormous amount of pop science books in high school before I found the relevant words 'tensor calculus' and 'differential geometry'.

However, on the other hand this means, these introductions will be very hard to read without at least basic knowledge in first semester physics. Is it really necessary for an introduction into quantum mechanics to elaborate on the relations between 'a very specific representation of the group U 1the representation as transformations of the complex plane' and Fourier analysis p.

Chapter 10 about 'New Insights in Quantum Field Theory and Mathematics' then provides you not even wrong peter woit detailed explanations on topics like p.

Penrose to call this 'compulsive reading' front flap. However, if you made it through chapter 10, the books gets better in the second part.

None of which was really new or surprising for me, but it is good to have not even wrong peter woit written down as clearly as Peter Woit does it. Having given up to expect a popular science book, here, I'd have wished for more technical details.

The later chapters then seem to not even wrong peter woit like a collection of essays that are rather vaguely connected to not even wrong peter woit other. The last third or so could reasonably be described in those terms. But the greater part of it is quite positive, and contains what I found to be a remarkably interesting take on quantum mechanics, presented so as to highlight the role played by the concept of symmetry.

The way Woit tells it, one of most important people in the development of the field was the mathematician Hermann Weyl, who came up with some of the central ideas, and showed how mathematical ways of describing symmetries could be made into a cornerstone of the theory.

There is an interesting human dimension to this as well. I can't imagine why this hasn't all been made into a movie. Maybe it has, and I just don't know about it.
