Proof of the Evans-Vigier field from the dirac equation of the fermion in the classical field: Reply to Rikken

  • M. W. Evans
Article

Abstract

The Dirac equation of the fermion in the classical electromagnetic field is used to prove the existence of the Evans-Vigier field from the first principles of relativistic quantum theory.

Key words

Dirac equation fermion Evans-Vigier field
