Self-Field Theory
Pages 48

During 1903-04 the effect on the motion of a single particle due

to its self-field was studied by both Abraham and Lorentz. They

modelled the isolated electron as a charged spherical surface of finite radius and found inconsistencies with classical electromagnetic

theory as the radius approached zero. In 2005 the self-fields of

pairs of particles were finally understood as a mutual phenomenon. The singularity problem at the charge points was solved by using

motions that avoid the charge points, assuming that at equilibrium

the two particles rotate never residing at their own centres of

rotation. The self-field theory model1 for the electromagnetic

field as a cyclic stream of photons provides an analysis of the

hydrogen atom and yields a derivation of Planck’s number . The bi-

spinorial function for each particle provides a physically plausible

interpretation of relativity. The “beads on a string” stream-like

electromagnetic field modifies the macroscopic time-invariant field

laws of Coulomb and Ampere at the atomic level. The E-and

H-fields must be measured between centres of rotation rather

than between charge points and applied as a coupled complete

electromagnetic field. The atomic self-field motions are obtained

using the Maxwell-Lorentz (ML) equations. Quantum theory can be

reinterpreted to include the coupled bi-spinorial field to yield the

same deterministic closed form eigensolutions as self-field theory.

Space-time orthogonality shows the complete self-field theory outer

shell electronic structure to be analytic. Self-field theory allows

reinterpretation of theweak and strong nuclear forces via amodified

system of ML equations.
