Modern Portfolio Theory, by Harry Markowitz appeared in 1952 Journal of Finance. From http://riskglossary.com/

Modern Portfolio Theory
- the theory that says its possible to select an optimal combination of assets such that the investor secures the highest possible return for a given level of risk or the least possible risk for a given level of return. Using portfolio theory, an investor assembles a group of assets on the basis of how the individual assets interact with one another. (Correlation) Thus, a security or asset class would be selected not on the basis of expected performance in isolation, but rather on the expected influence to risk and return of the investor's entire portfolio.

Correlation - a measure of how closely two variables move together through time. For example, shares tend to have a high degree of correlation because their prices are influenced by the same forces. The concept of correlation is an important part of Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) used for diversifying portfolios.
