String Theory


String Theory

A theory that postulates the existence of strings as the fundamental particles of matter, which are on the scale of about a millionth of a billionth of a billionth of a billionth of a centimeter. Particles we observer are excitations or resonances of these strings. This type of theory is used to unify other laws of physics into a theory of quantum gravity.
