Description

Warped Passages by Lisa Randall is a fascinating journey through the discoveries of the twentieth-century theoretical physics. As one of the world’s leading theoretical physicists, Lisa Randall provides astonishing scientific possibilities that, until recently, were restricted to the realm of science fiction. Along the path through the mysteries of nature, Professor Randall will explore the topics of relativity, quantum mechanics, gravity and string theory. Starting with the most fundamental constituents of our universe, as described by string theory, and ending with the fate of the universe itself, Randall, with great talent, tackles complex concepts in a comprehensible way.

About the author

Professor Lisa Randall studies theoretical particle physics and cosmology at Harvard University. Her research connects theoretical insights to puzzles in our current understanding of the properties and interactions of matter. She has developed and studied a wide variety of models to address these questions, the most prominent involving extra dimensions of space. Her work has involved improving our under-standing of the Standard Model of particle physics, supersymmetry, baryogenesis, cosmological inflation, and dark matter. Randall’s research also explores ways to experimentally test and verify ideas and her current research focuses in large part on the Large Hadron Collider and dark matter searches and models.
