What is Theoretical Physics?
Theoretical and mathematical physics employs mathematical models and abstractions of physics in an attempt to explain natural phenomena. At its central core is mathematical physics. Modern theoretical physics attempts to unify theories and explain phenomena to understand the universe, from the cosmological to the elementary particle scale. Where experimentation cannot be done, theoretical physics uses mathematical models to advance theories.
Mainstream theories possess the quality of repeatability with existing well-established science and experimentation. This includes theories such as fluid dynamics, quantum mechanics, and thermodynamics. On the other hand, proposed theories are in the process of becoming established and have not yet been tested. This includes such theories as the grand unification theory, theory of everything, dark energy, string theory, and Einstein-Rosen bridges.
