Our Mathematical Universe is a journey to explore the mysteries uncovered by cosmology and to discover the nature of reality. Our Big Bang, our distant future, parallel worlds, the sub-atomic and intergalactic - none of them are what they seem. But there is a way to understand this immense strangeness - mathematics. Seeking an answer to the fundamental puzzle of why our universe seems so mathematical, Tegmark proposes a radical idea: that our physical world not only is described by mathematics, but that it is mathematics. This may offer answers to our deepest questions: How large is reality? What is everything made of? Why is our universe the way it is?

Wat zegt de pers?

‘Our Mathematical Universe boldly confronts one of the deepest questions at the fertile interface of physics and philosophy: why is mathematics so spectacularly successful at describing the cosmos? Through lively writing and wonderfully accessible explanations, Max Tegmark — one of the world’s leading theoretical physicists — guides the reader to a possible answer, and reveals how, if it’s right, our understanding of reality itself would be radically altered.’ - Brian Greene

‘Daring. Radical. Innovative. A game changer. If Dr Tegmark is correct, this represents a paradigm shift in the relationship between physics and mathematics, forcing us to rewrite our textbooks. A must read for anyone deeply concerned about our universe.’ - Michio Kaku

‘A lucid, engaging account of the various many-universes theories of fundamental physics that are currently being considered, from the multiverse of quantum theory to Tegmark’s own grand vision’ DAVID DEUTSCH, physicist, Dirac Laureate for pioneering quantum computing, author of The Beginning of Infinity ‘Max Tegmark leads his readers, clearly and accessibly, right to the frontiers of speculative cosmology — and indeed far beyond.’ - Martin Rees
