I am looking for an anthology where one of the stories was about a scientist who leaves everything to find the one final equation or formula that will combine all equations.
The scientist was a man. He was tasked or obsessed with finding the one equation. The goal was to combine everything and thereby removing the existence of god. To find the final equation, he devoted all his time to research. He even lived alone for long time sacrificing all personal and social life. He nearly find it or close to finding it.
It was in an sci-fi anthology book, originally in Russian, but I read in English translated. Most probably one Russian author.
