Notes and Reflections on Books and Media
by Hannah Leitheiser
the elegant universe: superstrings, hidden dimensions, and the quest for the ultimate theory
the author talkes about how string theory brings physicists and mathematicians together. my experience of physics is it can be fairly loose with mathematics, which means physics is not just a matter of logic but also experience in knowing what sorts of approximations you can get away with. i have less exposure to how mathematicians operate, but guess it's more formal. green compares them to modern and classical musicians.
