These relationships could be found by "pure thought" of sufficiently intelligent observers, at least in principle. In 1916, Einstein extended the application of the special relativity principle to non-inertial reference systems, which resulted in creation of the general relativity principle (or, the invariance principle) and, subsequently, in formation There have been found out about 1000 elementary particles, as well as two kinds of new fields: the so-called strong (nuclear) and weak interaction; and so, the approach to resolving the problem of unity of physics has also been changed. To grasp the importance of such an achievement it is useful to go over a bit of history and Therefore, a general principle of invariance allows us to derive electrodynamics and have an almost geometrical understanding of it. 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. The Democritean vision of elementary particles as miniature snooker balls, however, has been somewhat vitiated by quantum theory, and it is not merely the classical notion of a particle as a localisable entity which has been undermined, but the mereological notion that a composite system has a unique decomposition into elementary entities. Given that these modes of excitation satisfy the principles of quantum theory, they are often dubbed 'excitation quanta'. A concrete example is the recent firm claim of the discovery of the Higgs particle, a crucial, and until recently missing, part of the standard model of elementary particles. 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. Examples of such principles are the principle of conservation of energy and the gauge principle (that is, the principle of local phase invariance), the principle of least action, the anti-commutation rules for fermions, and the correspondence principle of Rather, they claim, this principle has been almost universally adopted as a fundamental principle in elementary particle physicists because it is "so simple, beautiful and powerful (and apparently successful)" (1989, p. No matter how we word the debate, the conclusion is the same: the Higgs field is not, in principle, the universal giver of mass to all the elementary particles of nature.
