This would be a fun exercise to pick apart the so called math.

I've been trying to find if my favorite physicist had written anything about this, but came up empty.

The reason is obvious for someone like me with a fair bit of math capabilities. The author claims that the math is so complex that few people have yet to master it. I know that in string theory, it could take perhaps a thousand pages of math to explain some of the concepts. Personally I have been trying to get beyond chapter 1 of my Quantum Mechanics book let alone study string theory.

Anyways... evildictaitor is ... gulp... right.

The complexity of string theory:
