Brian Greene Describes Parallel Universes And The Deep Laws Of The Universe In His Book The Hidden Reality

Brian Greene, author of THE HIDDEN REALITY

Brian Greene is an American theoretical physicist and string theorist. He has been a professor at Columbia University since 1996.

Greene has worked on mirror symmetry, relating two different Calabi-Yau manifolds (concretely, relating the conifold to one of its orbifolds).

He also described the Flop Transition, a mild form of topology change, showing that topology in string theory can change at the conifold point.

He has become known to a wider audience through his books for the general public, The Elegant Universe, Icarus at the Edge of Time, The Fabric of the Cosmos, The Hidden Reality, and a related PBS television special.

Greene also appeared on The Big Bang Theory episode “The Herb Garden Germination.”

Brian Greene received his undergraduate degree from Harvard University and his doctorate from Oxford University, where he was a Rhodes scholar.
