**Special relativity**is mathematically self-consistent, and it is an organic part of all modern physical theories, most notably quantum field**theory**, string**theory**, and general**relativity**(in the limiting case of negligible gravitational fields).Jan 17, 2015 · The

**theory of relativity**is perhaps the most successful development in the history of**science**in terms of its agreement with experimental results and its ability to predict new phenomena - only quantum mechanics can claim to compete with its success.Oct 04, 2015 · Einstein’s

**theory****explained**a famous observation that Newtonian gravity could not: a subtlety in the orbit of the planet Mercury. And his equations implied further slight deviations from ...Although the

**Einstein field equations**were initially formulated in the context of a four-dimensional**theory**, some theorists have explored their consequences in n dimensions. The equations in contexts outside of general**relativity**are still referred to as the**Einstein field equations**.Jun 12, 2015 · When physicists talk about Einstein's equation they don't usually mean the famous E=mc2, but another

**formula**, which encapsulates the celebrated general**theory****of relativity**. Einstein published that**theory**a hundred years ago, in 1915. To celebrate its centenary we asked physicist David Tong of the University of Cambridge to explain what general**relativity**is and how Einstein's equation ...Apr 04, 2016 · Now, Newton’s

**relativity**is wrong, then nuclear weapons simply wouldn't work. Any**theory**or point of view that opposes Special**Relativity**must explain where E = mc 2 comes from if not**relativity**. Other models**of relativity**that contain E = mc 2 exist but here we are concerned with the standard model as proposed by Einstein.
