These relationships could be found by "pure thought" of sufficiently intelligent observers, at least in principle. Since the early days of quantum mechanics, and even the old quantum theory, people knew that particles and waves were just two aspects of the same thing. Symmetry has been a powerful concept in physics for nearly 100 years, allowing scientists to find unifying principles and build theories that describe how elementary particles and forces interact now and in the early universe. This potential catastrophe is prevented by gauge invariance, and the only possible gauge invariance for spin-2 fields is general covariance (diffeomorphism symmetry) of GR. Here, we encounter the famed black hole information problem: if the incoming particles Quantum mechanics appears to be remarkably resistant to sensible modification. These principles clash when pushed to the extreme—the sharpest version of the problem arises when we collide two particles at sufficient energy to form a black hole. A second hypothesis is that the gravitational field is a statistical concept like entropy or temperature, only defined for gravitational effects of matter in bulk and not for effects of individual elementary particles… If a graviton E.g.: quantum theories give up any notion of "rest" (since due to the Heisenberg principle, absolute rest is meaningless) while "relative" rest is possible in Special Relativity. Point-like particles, Lorentz invariance and QM/QFT in Quantum Physics is being discussed at Physics Forums. Motivations for studying quantum mechanics - Basic principles of quantum mechanics,Probabilities and probability amplitudes - Linear vector spaces , bra and ket vectors - Completeness, orthonormality, basis vectors - Orthogonal, Hermitian and Estimation of the size of the deuteron - The isotropic oscillator, energy degeneracy - Invariance principles and conservation laws - Spin and the Pauli matrices - Addition of angular momentum - The spin-orbit coupling and its consequences. With the rapid development of the physics of elementary particles during the 1950s, new conservation laws were discovered that have meaning only on this subatomic level. The Higgs boson plays a key role in the Standard Model: it is related to the unification of the electromagnetic and weak forces, explains the origin of elementary particle masses, and provides a weakly coupled way to . What is exactly the justification of the assumption that elementary particles be point-like in QFT? If quantum mechanics is sacred, apparently other principles must go: either those of relativistic invariance, or of locality, or both. There are some apparent (and somewhat controversial) counter-examples: the cosmological constant problem is a much more severe 'fine-tuning' problem which may be explained anthropically rather than through more fundamental principles. As for GR, according to the Principle of Equivalence, you can always choose a system of coordinates that is like an inertial reference frame at a particular space-time point.
