About the Author

Robert Oerter teaches physics at George Mason University. He lives in Maryland.


Oerter (physics, George Mason Univ.) has written an accessible guide to the standard model, a theory of all known physical interactions, excluding gravity. Theories that support and influence this model, such as special relativity, quantum mechanics, and quantum electrodynamics, are discussed in detail; readers will be able to follow the author's transitions between theories and building of complex ideas. Descriptions of recent experiments and concepts that may influence the standard model complete the book. An index, a short bibliography of annotated sources for further reading, numerous illustrations and figures, and multiple appendixes that expound on textual matter are also included. Other titles that provide background to Oerter's work are Tian Yu Cao's Conceptual Developments of 20th Century Field Theories and W. Noel Cottingham and Derek A. Greenwood's An Introduction to the Standard Model of Particle Physics. On its own, however, Oerter's text is accessible to scientists and lay readers alike. Recommended for large public and academic libraries.-Elizabeth Brown, Binghamton Univ. Libs., NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

"Accessible and engaging...This book is for anyone interested in modern physics and ultimate answers about the universe." - Science News "We always hear about black holes, the big bang, and the search for life in the universe. But rare is the book that celebrates the Standard Model of Elementary Particles - a triumph of 20th century science that underpins nearly all we know about physical reality. Oerter's The Theory of Almost Everything belongs on anyone's shelf who cares about how the universe really works." - Neil deGrasse Tyson"
