A Mathematical Overview of Mass and Energy Conservation in Modern Physics

Authors: Dang Dang

The idea of energy, matter, and motion has perplexed many philosophers and physicists from antiquity to modern physics, from Plato to Einstein. New and developing physical theories raise different interpretations of energy and matter but no complete theory of everything exists at present. However, there is a law we can almost take for granted: the law of conservation of energy, which states that energy cannot be created nor destroyed although it can be transformed from one form to another. After establishing the foundational theory and history of conservation of energy, this literature review aims to provide an overview of the concept of mass and energy conservation in two of the most fundamental physical theories - quantum mechanics and general relativity. Consequences and challenges of mass-energy conservation and equivalence - dark energy - is studied in an introductory manner.
