Read through the most famous quotes from Edward Witten

As far as extra dimensions are concerned, very tiny extra dimensions wouldn't be perceived in everyday life, just as atoms aren't: we see many atoms together but we don't see atoms individually. ↗

As of now, string theorists have no explanation of why there are three large dimensions as well as time, and the other dimensions are microscopic. Proposals about that have been all over the map. ↗

Having those extra dimensions and therefore many ways the string can vibrate in many different directions turns out to be the key to being able to describe all the particles that we see. ↗

#being #describe #different #different directions #dimensions

It's indeed surprising that replacing the elementary particle with a string leads to such a big change in things. I'm tempted to say that it has to do with the fuzziness it introduces. ↗

#big change #change #elementary #fuzziness #i

On the other hand, we don't understand the theory too completely, and because of this fuzziness of spacetime, the very concept of spacetime and spacetime dimensions isn't precisely defined. ↗

One of the basic things about a string is that it can vibrate in many different shapes or forms, which gives music its beauty. ↗

This had implications for low-dimensional topology and led to quantum invariants such as the Witten–ReEdward Wittentikhin–Turaev invariants. He is the son of Lorraine (Wollach) Witten and Louis Witten a theoretical physicist specializing in gravitation and general relativity. With Gary Horowitz Philip Candelas and Andrew Strominger Witten showed how string theory can lead to realistic descriptions by compactifying the theory on a higher dimensional manifold known as Calabi–Yau manifolds.

Witten is a researcher in superstring theory a theory of quantum gravity supersymmetric quantum field theories and other areas of mathematical physics. He has made contributions in mathematics and helped bridge gaps between fundamental physics and other areas of mathematics.
