  • Résumé

Explores symmetry - a concept that is simple, complex, multi-disciplinary and unifying. This book narrates the history of this area of study, from its roots in 10th-century BC Babylon to its role in 21st century physics. It describes the world beyond superstrings: the "octonionic" symmetries that may explain the very existence of the universe.
