Phenomenological Physics

  1. Oct 27, 2009 #1
    Is there a special field of physics called phenomenological physics? What is the exact definition of it? Is it associated with something of High Energy Physics?

    Phenomenology is the catch-all term that refers to the physically-measurable / testable effects of a theory (most often high energy physics, but it can apply to any field). It's not really a branch of physics, in the same way that theoretical, experimental, and computational are.
