Max Tegmark PhD, Professor of Physics at MIT; author, Our Mathematical Universe.
One of the most original cosmologists at work today leads us on an astonishing journey through the physics, astronomy, and mathematics that are the foundation of his work, most particularly his Mathematical Universe Hypothesis (MUH), which implies that our physical world is in reality an abstract mathematical structure. Combining both popular and groundbreaking science, he will help us grasp his often mind-boggling theories and share some of the often-surprising triumphs and disappointments that have shaped his life as a scientist.
