Э́двард Ви́ттен — американский физик-теоретик, лауреат Филдсовской премии , профессор Института перспективных исследований в Принстоне. Является одним из ведущих в мире исследователей теории струн и квантовой теории поля. Виттен признан многими как один из самых талантливых живущих физиков.


„Когда бы вы ни постригли ногти, спустя час они вам понадобятся.“

„String theory is an attempt at a deeper description of nature by thinking of an elementary particle not as a little point but as a little loop of vibrating string.“


„If one of the five theories describes our univers, who lives in the other four worlds“

„Away from the safety of your home, the universe was not made for your convenience.“

„We have one real candidate for changing the rules; this is string theory. In string theory the one-dimensional trajectory of a particle in spacetime is replaced by a two-dimensional orbit of a string. Such strings can be of any size, but under ordinary circumstances they are quite tiny,... a value determined by comparing the predictions of the theory for Newton's constant and the fine structure constant to experimental values.“

„Most people who haven't been trained in physics probably think of what physicists do as a question of incredibly complicated calculations, but that's not really the essence of it. The essence of it is that physics is about concepts, wanting to understand the concepts, the principles by which the world works.“
