classical

In physics, the word is used with two meanings. First of all, it denotes physical models or theories that take into account neither the effects of Einstein's theories of relativity nor those of quantum physics, for example classical mechanics. However, it is also used to denote models or theories that are not formulated in the framework of quantum physics; in that sense, general relativity is an example for a classical theory.
