Stochastic Electrodynamics General Considerations

  • Simon Diner
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 261)


Stochastic Electrodynamics is a tentative to account for the peculiarities of quantum physics from a completely classical point of view. It has the advantage over many other attempts on that way to be physically well defined and to lead to equations which are not impossible to solve, so that it is possible to check the theory against experiment or other theories, as quantum mechanics.
