En estos días estoy comentando una entrevista a Edward Witten, tal vez el más conocido de los teóricos de cuerdas. Recuerdo mi primer encuentro con la teoría de cuerdas, a fines de los setenta y comienzos de los ochenta: las trayectorias de Regge, Veneziano, en artículos de la Scientific American.

Como otras teorías físicas, la teoría de cuerdas trata de evitar el infinito:

Horror al infinito

Lo que para mí, una clave para entender y modelar la naturaleza física

Leo en la wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/String_theory

String theory is an active research framework in particle physics that attempts to reconcilequantum mechanics and general relativity. It is a contender for a theory of everything (TOE), a self-contained mathematical model that describes all fundamental forces and forms ofmatter. String theory posits that the elementary particles (ie. electrons and quarks) within anatom are not 0-dimensional objects, but rather 1-dimensional oscillating lines ("strings").
