Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Brian Greene, professor of physics and mathematics, Columbia University, and author of The Elegant Universe
Supersymmetry and Beyond is the fascinating account of the search for nature’s fundamental building blocks, told by a modern day pioneer. The stakes are high and the story dramatic: if experiments should establish that nature is supersymmetric, we would have finally glimpsed the quantum nature of space and time.”

David Gross, Nobel Laureate in Physics, and Frederick W. Gluck Chair, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, University of California, Santa Barbara
“A great introduction to the frontiers of modern physics, from the discovery of the Higgs to the prospects for supersymmetry and beyond.”
