**Physics, Astronomy & Cosmology / How does 'the math' explain complicated physics theories**

« **on:**19/05/2020 17:48:46 »

Physicists like Brian Greene (Until the End of Time etc.) in lectures, discussions online . frequently 'explain' concepts like string theory that have no experimental evidence by saying it's all there in 'the math'. Sometimes graphics help visualize the concepts but in terms of evidence to justify the ideas, understanding stops at 'the math'. Is there anywhere ordinary non mathematicians can learn enough about 'the math' to see how the equations explain physics concepts that have no experimental evidence or are difficult to grasp ?

And what is meant b y a 'beautiful equation'? Are there any simple examples?
