A theory of everything ( ToE ) or final theory is a putative theory of theoretical physics that fully explains and links together all known physical phenomena, and predicts the outcome of any experiment that could be carried out in principle . [ 1 ] The term mainly refers to the desire to reconcile the two main successful physical frameworks, general relativity which describes gravity and the large-scale structure of spacetime , and quantum field theory , particularly as implemented in the standard model , which describes the small-scale structure of matter while incorporating the other three non-gravitational forces, the weak , strong and electromagnetic interactions.
Technicolor theories are models of physics beyond the standard model that address electroweak symmetry breaking , the mechanism through which elementary particles acquire masses.
In particle physics , supersymmetry (often abbreviated SUSY ) is a proposed symmetry of nature relating two basic classes of elementary particles: bosons , which have an integer-valued spin , and fermions , which have a half-integer spin. Each particle from one group is associated with a particle from the other, called its superpartner , whose spin differs by a half-integer.
String theory is an active research framework in particle physics that attempts to reconcile quantum mechanics and general relativity . It is a contender for a theory of everything (TOE), a self-contained mathematical model that describes all fundamental forces and forms of matter .
Quantum gravity ( QG ) is a field of theoretical physics that develops scientific models .
