In studying physics and the definitions of the concepts used in developing the mathematical models describing the data, one has to be clear of the framework of the discussion.

There are the following frameworks with different mathematical modeling:

1) Classical:

1.a) Newtonian mechanics

1.b) Maxwell's electromagnetic theory

1.c)statistical mechanics (the Newtonian mechanics of many body kinematics)

1.d)thermodynamics ( which is emergent from statistical mechanics)

2)Quantum mechanical

2.a)What is called first quantization with the solutions of Th Schrodinger equatiion on potential problems

2.b) Quantum electrodynamics (electromagnetism at the quantized level)

2.c) Quantum field theory ( applied to elementary particles)

2.d)Quantum statistical mechanics ( the statistical mechanics modifiedbyquantum solutions)

There is also special relativity and general relativity, which should be classified in both frames.
