The Landscape of Theoretical Physics:A Global View
From Point Particles to the Brane World andBeyond, in Search of a Unifying Principle
Matej PascJoˇzef Stefan Institute, Jamova 39, 1000 Ljubljana, Sloveniae-mail: matej.pavsic@ijs.si; http://www-f1.ijs.si/ pavsic/
This is a book for those who would like to learn something about specialand general relativity beyond the usual textbooks, about quantum fieldtheory, the elegant Fock-Schwinger-Stueckelberg proper time formalism, theelegant description of geometry by means of Clifford algebra, about thefascinating possibilities the latter algebra offers in reformulating the existingphysical theories, and quantizing them in a natural way. It is shown howClifford algebra provides much more: it provides room for new physics,with the prospects of resolving certain long standing puzzles. The theory of branes and the idea of how a 3-brane might represent our world is discussedin detail. Much attention is paid to the elegant geometric theory of braneswhich employs the infinite dimensional space of functions describing branes.Clifford algebra is generalized to the infinite dimensional spaces. In short,this is a book for anybody who would like to explore how the “theory of everything” might possibly be formulated. The theory that would describeall the known phenomena, could not be formulated without taking intoaccount “all” the theoretical tools which are available. Foundations of thosetools and their functional interrelations are described in the book.
This book was published by Kluwer Academic Publishers in 2001.The body of the posted version is identical to the published one, except for corrections of misprints, and some minor revisions that I have found nec-essary.
