Coherent Electrodynamics in Water

  • E. Del Giudice
  • G. Preparata


The phenomenological properties of water are shown to be inconsistent with the generally accepted approach to condensed matter, whose basic assumption is that interactions between molecules are electrostatic and short range. On the contrary, Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) is seen to play a key role in the existence of the liquid state. In particular, a collective dynamics emerges, which could have significant biological implications.
