classical field theory نگرهی ِ کلاسیک ِ میدان negare-ye klâsik-e meydân
*Fr.: théorie classique des champs*
The theory that studies distributions of → *energy*,
→ *matter*, and other physical
quantities under circumstances where their discrete nature is
unimportant. Classical field theory traditionally includes
→ *Newtonian mechanics*,
Maxwell's → *electromagnetic theory*, and
Einstein's theory of → *general relativity*.
The main scope of classical field theory is to construct the mathematical
description of → *dynamical system*s with an infinite
number of degrees of freedom. The word "classical" is used in contrast to those field
theories that incorporate → *quantum mechanics*
(→ *quantum field theory*).
Classical field theories are usually categorized as
→ *non-relativistic* and → *relativistic*. → *classical*; → *field*;
→ *theory*. |
