Quantum Theory of Gyromagnetic Processes

Abstract

First order processes are described by a Feynman diagram with a single electron-photon vertex. In the presence of a static magnetic field, such a diagram describes six allowed processes: emission and absorption of a photon by an electron or a positron, and one-photon pair creation or annihilation. These are referred to here as the first-order gyromagnetic processes.

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
