This is an invaluable collection of colloquium-type lectures given by some of the most prominent theoretical physicists of today. In a form accessible to the interested general physicist, it covers topics ranging from the use of field-theoretical methods in different contexts via duality symmetries between various field theories, to the Ads/CFT correspondence and cosmology.

  • The Weak Interaction: Its History and Impact on Physics (T D Lee)
  • Electron Orbits and Superconductivity of Carbon 60 (T D Lee)
  • The Power of Duality — Exact Results in 4D SUSY Field Theory (N Seiberg)
  • String Theory as a Universal Language (A M Polyakov)
  • The Cosmological Tests (P J E Peebles)
  • Anti-de-Sitter Space, Thermal Phase Transition, and Confinement in Gauge Theories (E Witten)
  • Can There Be Physics Without Experiments? Challenges and Pitfalls (G 't Hooft)

Readership: Researchers and graduate students in high energy physics, theoretical physics, astrophysics, cosmology and the history of physics.
