The only known limitation on the speed of classical systems is that objects may not travel faster than the speed of light due to special relativity, but this is unrelated to the energytime relation in quantum speed limits. The new papers show that speed limits based on a tradeoff between energy and time doÃÂ ...

... stability proofs have been even harder to find than solutions to the equations themselves. Consider the case of flat, empty Minkowski space — the simplest of all spacetime configurations. This solution to Einstein's equations was found in 1908 in the context of Einstein's earlier theory of special relativity.

Then, in 1905, when Albert Einstein published his Theory of Special Relativity, physics was revolutionised.

He built upon the notion that light wasÃÂ ...
