Electromagnetic Interactions beyond Quantum Electrodynamics

  • A. O. Barut


There is growing evidence that the electromagnetic interactions of fundamental particles have a much richer and deeper structure than that given by the perturbation series of quantum electrodynamics. It is the purpose of this paper to discuss the directions in which either the methods or the concepts of quantum electrodynamics have to be generalized and to point out possible novel and unexpected phenomena.
