Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) is considered the most accurate theory in the history of science. However, this precision is limited to a single experimental value: the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron (g-factor). The calculation of the electron g-factor was carried out in 1950 by Karplus and Kroll. Seven years later, Petermann detected and corrected a serious error in the calculation of a Feynman diagram; however, neither the original calculation nor the subsequent correction was ever…

Toroidal model of leptons
Toroidal models for the electron are given by several authors. Essential ingredients in these models are: a radius r1 of the torus, a radius r2 of the tube of the torus and a toroidal factor N,
Popular Discussion of Classical and Finite Mathematics
Following the book [1] we discuss on a popular level different aspects of classical and finite mathematics and explain why classical mathematics is a special degenerate case of finite one.


The Radiation Theories of Tomonaga , Schwinger , and Feynman
A unified development of the subject of quantum electrodynamics is outlined, embodying the main features both of the Tomonaga-Schwinger and of the Feynman radiation theory. The theory is carried to a
Fourth-Order Corrections in Quantum Electrodynamics and the Magnetic Moment of the Electron
The covariant S matrix formalism of Dyson has been applied to the calculation of the fourth-order radiative correction to the magnetic moment of the electron. Intermediate results for the covariant
Revised and improved value of the QED tenth-order electron anomalous magnetic moment
In order to improve the theoretical prediction of the electron anomalous magnetic moment ${a}_{e}$ we have carried out a new numerical evaluation of the 389 integrals of Set V, which represent 6,354
The Magnetic Moment of the Electron.
THE hypothesis of the spinning electron assigns to the electron an angular momentum h/4π and a magnetic moment eh/4πmc. Dirac1 showed that the spectroscopic duplexity pointed out by Heisenberg can be
The magnetic moment of the electron
Abstract The spin magnetic dipole moment of the electron is computed to fourth order in perturbation theory. The procedure is to consider a system of one electron moving in a constant external

The new measurement has an uncertainty that is about six times smaller, and it shifts the values by 1.7 standard deviations, so the lowest quantum levels of the spin and cyclotron motion are resolved, and the cycle frequencies as well as spin frequencies are determined using quantum jump spectroscopy.
Magnetic dipole moment of the electron
We present a model which determines the correct value of the magnetic dipole moment of the electron. By this, we find a physical meaning for the electron spin.
