Course Description

The quantum revolution in particle physics has left a deep rift at the heart of what we know about the universe. How we reconcile Einstein’s account of gravity with quantum mechanics remains one of the biggest mysteries in science and one of its most fertile areas of discovery- resulting in of the most radical and controversial ideas in modern science: string theory.

In this course, one of the greatest pioneers in contemporary physics, Michael Duff, makes the case for M-theory; string theory’s most complete account of reality- how it works, and how it changes our understanding of science, the universe, and beyond.

In this course, you will learn:
  • Why one-dimensional ‘strings’ might make up the fabric of reality.
  • How M-theory might revolutionize the standard model of particle physics.
  • Why M-theory demands there to be 11 dimensions.
  • What branes are, and why they suggest a potentially infinite multiverse.
  • How these ideas might scientific myster...
