Abstract

The problem of describing a system of interacting four-dimensional universes is addressed. String theory provides a soluble model of interacting two-dimensional universes, and suggests a `third-quantized' description of the four-dimensional problem. Some fascinating consequences of the existence of other universes are discussed within this framework.
