Objective of Theoretical Studies and Their Links with Experiment

Although theory and experiment are often portrayed to be two different disciplines (in whatever field), it is nevertheless the case that progress in one would not be made without the other, Objectively, at least in the physical sciences, the causa principali is the advancement or our understanding and knowledge of the “real world”.
