A classical field theory is a physical theory that predicts how one or more physical fields interact with matter through field equations.The term 'classical field theory' is commonly reserved for describing those physical theories that describe electromagnetism and gravitation, two of the fundamental forces of nature. The last chapter 6 gives a concise summary of semi-Riemannian geometry as the framework for the classical field theory of gravitation.
