Release Notes
Recent developments in cosmology and particle physics, such as the string
landscape picture, have led to the remarkable realization that our
universe—rather than being unique—could be just one of many universes. The
multiverse proposal helps to explain the origin of the universe and some of its
observational features. Since the physical constants can be different in other
universes, the fine-tunings which appear necessary for the emergence of life may
also be explained. Nevertheless, many physicists remain uncomfortable with the
multiverse proposal, since it is highly speculative and perhaps untestable. In
this volume, a number of active and eminent researchers in the field—mainly
cosmologists and particle physicists but also some philosophers—address these
issues and describe recent developments. The articles represent the full
spectrum of views, providing for the first time an overview of the subject. They
are written at different academic levels, engaging lay-readers and researchers
