Examples are the principle of the shortest time, the principle of the smallest effect, the uncertainty principle. See also theories, laws of nature, laws, natural constants._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Correspondence Principle/Bohr/Feyerabend: "The 'asymptotic relationship' between quantum theory and classical physics by no means aims at the disappearance of the differences between the quantum theoretical treatment of the radiation processes and the ideas of classical electrodynamics.
Def Correspondence Principle/Bohr/Feyerabend: Bohr's principle asserts a consistency of figures, not of concepts. Disadvantage: this concealed the fundamental difference between the laws.
Bohr: the principle of correspondence is to be regarded as a purely quantum theoretical principle, which can by no means reduce the contrast between the postulates of stationary states and the postulate of transition._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
