Called by some, “the theory of everything,” superstrings may solve a problem that has eluded physicists for the past 50 years, the final unification of the two great theories of the twentieth century, general relativity and quantum field theory.

They believe that the critics have missed the point. This might be done by curling up 6 of the 10 dimensions, leaving us with a 4 dimensional theory that might resemble the Standard Model a bit.
The next breakthrough came when usperstrings was shown that there was a second class of dualities, called S duality, which provided a duality between the perturbative and non-perturbative regions of string theory.
Another duality, called U duality, was even more powerful. He is also author of the popular science books: User Review – Flag as inappropriate page ? Unlike its rivals, it has survived every blistering mathematical challenge ever hurled at it. Notice that each contribution is getting smaller and smaller, so we can in principle add them all up.
