Hey everyone, I've got a question. I've been doing a lot of reading about Quantum Field Theories lately, and watching a lot of lectures about field theories in general, and I'm wondering, is Special Relativity a field theory? For instance, in this article and the lecture accompanying it...http://www.symmetrymagazine.org/article/july-2013/real-talk-everything-is-made-of-fields ...Sean Carroll is discussing how essentially all of physics comes down to fields. We're taught from early on in introductory chemistry and physics courses that nature is constructed of point particles, but when we delve deeper into things, it becomes apparent that everything is really constructed of fields, rather than point particles. With Quantum Field Theories, and General Relativity, this is an overriding train of thought, but I haven't really been able to find any information one way or the other for Special Relativity. Does this apply to Special Relativity? Sorry if this seems like a stupid question, but I'm a lowly undergrad that's very early in my studies, so forgive me.
