    Quantum physics is an Ab-initio model because it describes all the interactions between atoms and molecules. On the contrary, Classical mechanics is ab-initio if only macroscopic objects are considered. I think that classical electromagnetism can be considered an ab-initio theory if low frequencies are involved, if not it is necessary to introduce photons and then QED, that is the real first principle physics about electromagnetism.
