- n. a generalization of special relativity to include gravity (based on the principle of equivalence)
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Building on the concept of the quanta, in 1923, almost a decade after Einstein published his general relativity theory no longer a theory; now it is a law, the French physicist Louis de Broglie introduced an idea that was even more bizarre in its assertions than Einstein’s claim that matter really was a form of energy.
