Theoretical physics is a branch of physics that uses mathematics and abstractions to to explain and predict natural phenomena, rather than using physical experiments. Unlike experimental physics theoretical physics tends to blur the lines between mathematics, natural science, and philosophy.

The law of large numbers says, the more instances of a probable event that are considered, the more the theoretical and actual results converge.
All elementary particles exhibit wave-particle duality, acting as both a particle and a wave.
The standard model of particle physics shows how the elementary particles interact via the four forces to create the physical universe.
To quantize is to restrict something to a set of values. In digital music notes can be quantized to beats, in physics energy is quantized energy states.

“Light” is a particle (photon), that acts like a wave, and is understood as a localized vibration in the electromagnetic field.
Here is a list of the fundamental dualities relating to human nature and the physical and conceptual universe.
Reference frames and relativity in physics explained using math-free examples. We cover: frames of reference, inertial frames, accelerated frames, and relativity.
The physical constants are measurable properties of the physical universe that don’t change, everything else is relative to these constants.
We explain the standard model of particle physics in simple terms for non-experts using videos, facts, and bullet points.
