Relativistic electrodynamics without Lorentz transformations

The object of this exercise is to show that the force between moving charges can be obtained in a very different way than is usual without recourse to the Lorentz transformations. We suppose the spinning electron creates two massless strings which connect to another electron either stationary or moving. Each string carries a wave, one the de Broglie wave and the other a wave that moves at c that mediates the force between charges in addition to guiding the electron’s motion.


Le but de cet exercice est de montrer que la force entre les charges mobiles peut être obtenue d'une manière très différente de ce qui est habituel sans recourir aux transformations de Lorentz. Nous supposons que l'électron en rotation crée deux chaînes sans masse qui se connectent à un autre électron stationnaire ou en mouvement. Chaque corde porte une onde, l'une l'onde de de Broglie et l'autre une onde qui se déplace à c qui médie la force entre les charges en plus de guider le mouvement de l'électron.


Key words: Relativity; Quantum Theory; Lorentz Transformations; Electrodynamics.
