Faber & Faber Ltd., 2019. — 336 p. — ISBN 978-0-465-05665-1.A ground breaking exploration of how the interplay of physics and mathematics has enriched our understanding of the universe - essential reading for anyone who wants to grasp how physicists are attempting, in Stephen Hawking's words, to 'know the mind of God'. One of the great mysteries of science is that underlying all the complexities of the universe is a harmonious order, whose existence Einstein described as 'a miracle'. No less miraculous, the fundamental laws of the universe can be written in the language of advanced mathematics. Graham will describe how this mathematical approach has led to insights into both fundamental physics and advanced mathematics, which appear to be inextricably intertwined. Some physicists and mathematicians believe they are working towards a giant mathematical structure that encompasses all the fundamental laws of nature. But might this be an illusion? Might mathematics be leading physics astray?Prologue: Listening to the Universe Mathematics Drives Away the Cloud Shining the Torch on Electricity and Magnetism Shining the Torch on Gravity Again Quantum Mathematics The Long Divorce Revolution Bad Company?
