I am a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics). My work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. I am best known to the general public for my mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc^2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". I received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory. ...

Course Objective
Theoretical physics is a branch of physics that employs mathematical models and abstractions of physical objects and systems to rationalize, explain and predict natural phenomena. This is in contrast to experimental physics, which uses experimental tools to probe these phenomena. The advancement of science generally depends on the interplay between experimental studies and theory. In some cases, theoretical physics adheres to standards of mathematical rigour while giving little weight to experiments and observations. ... More Less
Required knowledge
A physical theory is a model of physical events. It is judged by the extent to which its predictions agree with empirical observations.
What you need to prepare
Theoretical physics consists of several different approaches. In this regard, theoretical particle physics forms a good example.
