Critical Comments on Radiation Theory

  • W. E. LambJr.
Conference paper


A number of theoretical alternatives to quantum electrodynamics have been proposed in recent years, and are discussed at this Conference. They include theories in which the radiation field is treated as a classical c-number field, and others in which the field is an operator function of its sources. These alternatives are critically examined.
