Symmetry and Simplicity in Physics - A Symposium on the Occasion of Sergio Fubini's 65 Birthday by Wanda Maria Alberico (Editor), Stefano Sciuto (Editor). Stenger convincingly argues that, based on established principles of simplicity and symmetry, at its deepest level reality is literally timeless.

For example, a square can be rotated by 90° and it looks the same. Stenger maintains that reality may be simpler and less mysterious than most think. The quantum world only appears mysterious when forced to obey rules of everyday human experience.

Stenger convincingly argues that, based on established principles of simplicity and symmetry, at its deepest level reality is literally timeless.

In physics, a symmetry of a physical system is a physical or mathematical feature of the system (observed or intrinsic) that is preserved or remains unchanged under some transformation.

A family of particular transformations may be continuous (such as rotation of a circle) or discrete (e.g., reflection of a bilaterally symmetric figure, or rotation of a regular. Fearful Symmetrybrings the incredible discoveries of contemporary physics within everyone's grasp.A.

Zee, a distinguished physicist and skillful expositor, tells the exciting story of how today's theoretical physicists are following Einstein in their search for the beauty and simplicity of Nature.

When I think of the intellectual history of symmetry in physics, I like to picture two schools of thought, united in their devotion to symmetry but differing in their outlooks on the character of symmetry. On one side stand Einstein and his intellectual descendants. To them, symmetry is beauty incarnate.
