Collective electrodynamics I

By Carver A. Mead

Abstract

Standard results of electromagnetic theory are derived from the direct interaction of macroscopic quantum systems; the only assumptions used are the Einstein–deBroglie relations, the discrete nature of charge, the Green’s function for the vector potential, and the continuity of the wave function. No reference is needed to Maxwell’s equations or to traditional quantum formalism. Correspondence limits based on classical mechanics are shown to be inappropriate
