Abstract

The Casimir force, predicted to exist more than half a century ago, remains at the forefront of modern physics with broad applications beyond the originally predicted attraction of uncharged plates. This review discusses recent issues, particularly the finite temperature correction and its resolution, along with limits on new long-range forces that can arise in the context of, for example, string theory. A meta-review of books and reviews is also presented.
