Stringtheorie, theoretische und mathematische Physik
String theory unifies two incompatible concepts: Quantum physics describes the behavior of elementary particles and their exchange forces – neatly sorted on the shelves of the Standard Model of particle physics. The theory of gravity explains spacetime in the universe with its immeasurable distances. The problem: It cannot be described quantum-physically and integrated into the standard model of particle physics.
