It could be hydrodynamics...fluid mechanics...probably...

But these examples are quite rare...

Hydrodynamics and fluid mechanics (its subset) both incorporate Fick's Law... a very basic mathematical principle. Could we really use Fick's Law in physics withoutOriginally posted by bogdan

I'm stupid...but what's thate "Einstein's relationship" ?

Well...Einstein did not work on the GUT...at least not for weak and strong interactions...

And...fluid mechanics is a subset of hydrodynamics ?

Actually, Einstein believed in the Ether, just that, he, like other believers in the Ether, couldn't prove it.

There was evidence that disproved two of, the then known, possible 'etherial operation' explainations, the third option was neither, known, nor explored.

Hence the answer is the Ether. Einsteins personal work was not what disproved that one, neither is there exsisting, today, a method of validation/test that has been tried/tested, for the third option.

However, he never got involved in subatomic particles. The majority of his work is based on a macro conception.

Again, the Fick's Law and the Einstein Relation.

Except that the primary goal of GUT is to unite every principle physical process... and of course explain Einstein's GR with this theory.

Sure he did. First, he postulated the existence of the photon, which is on the list of "subatomic particles". Second, the Standard Model is a union of the electroweak theory and QCD, two relativistic quantum field theories. We all know the Standard Model won't last, but the candidates to take it over (namely String Theory and Loop Quantum Gravity) are also relativistic.Originally posted by einsteinian77

Acoustics! Although i don't think its possible for any scientist to effect it since pretty much done with.

He never contributed to the expanding universe that was observed by hubble too.

well..einstein didn't know about weak and strong interactions...he tried to unify gravity with electromagnetism...

So...QCD is a domain where einstein had nothing to say...

Of course you can say that he had something to do with it...but it's like saying that newton worked on the GUT because he tried to unify the movement of cosmic bodies with bodies on earth...

Let's not get too excited...einstein played a major role in physics...but he didn't influenced too much some areas...

Well...if a theory uses certain principles (like relativity) it doesn't mean that the creator of relativity had something to say about that theory...like the guy that invented in maths the method of induction...or the fourier transform (Fourier)...Fourier wasn't interested in sginal processing and stuff like that...he used it for "heat diffusion" (I don't know the exact words for it)...so...

...reality check...
