Perhaps the major new viewpoint that has emerged from recent investigations is that one can now work inside a time-dependent quantum. The book may serve as a reference work in the field, and is of general interest for physicists working in quantum optics, mesoscopic electrodynamics and physical optics.

The macroscopic and microscopic classical theories form a good starting point for the quantum approach, and these theories are presented in a manner appropriate for graduate. This book is addressed to readers who are familiar with quantum mechanics and classical electrodynamics at the level of university courses.

Show less. Quantum Electrodynamics focuses on the formulation of quantum electrodynamics (QED) in its most general and most abstract form: relativistic quantum field theory. It describes QED as a program. In particle physics, quantum electrodynamics (QED) is the relativistic quantum field theory of electrodynamics.

Free shipping for many products!In spite of the impressive predictive power and strong mathematical structure of quantum mechanics, the theory has always suffered from important conceptual problems. Some of these have never been solved. Motivated by this state of affairs, a number of physicists have worked together for over thirty years to develop stochastic electrodynamics, a physical theory aimed at finding a conceptually.
