One of the most interesting of these queries is that which concerns the possible interconvertibility of light and matter. This analogy has been compared to the relation between energy and mass epitomized in Einstein equation E=mc2, but there has been some scepticism as to whether a mathematical relationship between the two could be established. This book examines the theory.
