Relativity impacts at quantum level

  1. Feb 25, 2016 #1
    While the distances are clearly too small to matter practically, conceptually are quantum interactions (eg force carrying particle exchanges) occuring at the speed of light ? And are there any dilation issues at play ?

    High-energy particle physics clearly shows that our world behaves relativistically also in the microscopic realm.
