Value Description
Effectiveness means the capability of producing an effect. The quality of being effective. In mathematics, effective is sometimes used as a synonym of algorithmically computable. In physics, an effective theory is, similar to a phenomenological theory, a framework intended to explain certain effects without the claim that the theory correctly models the underlying processes. An example is an effective field theory that pretends that certain effects are caused by a field even if it is known that this is not actually the case. In a way, any theory of Physics is fundamentally an effective theory, since there is no meaningful distinction of observables and reality within the scope of Physics.
