    Quantum physics are called an ab initio model because they start from the schrödinger equations, which form the ‘basis’of all behaviour.

    Same reasoning can be applied for classical mechanics but they start from the newton equations.

    I think classical electromagnetism is based on the Maxwell equations, but I am not sure about that. But that would make it an ab initio model as well.
