It is well known that classical electrodynamics is riddled with internal inconsistencies springing from the fact that it is a linear, Abelian theory in which the potentials are unphysical. This volume offers a self-consistent hypothesis which removes some of these problems, as well as builds a framework on which linear and nonlinear optics are treated as a non-Abelian gauge field theory based on the emergence of the fundamental magnetizing field of radiation, the B(3) field.

Contents:

  • Interaction of Electromagnetic Radiation with One Fermion

  • Physical Phase Effects in O(3)b Electrodynamics
  • Quantum Electrodynamics and the B(3) Field
  • Quantum Chaos, Topological Indices and Gauge Theories
  • Field Theory of O(3)b QED and Unification with Weak and Nuclear Interactions
  • Potential Applications of O(3)b QED
  • Duality and Fundamental Problems

Readership: Graduate and undergraduates in physics (electromagnetism), differential geometry & topology, electrical & electronic engineering, theoretical & physical chemistry, chaos and dynamical systems.
