Radiational Hypothesis of Gravitation
700 Royal Avenue, #18, Medford, Oregon 97504 U.S.A.
After an extension of classical electrodynamics by this author [Phys. Essays 11, 34 (1998)], we have classical models for elementary particles. Although not completely mathematically evaluated to be compared with experiment directly, these models require for their stability strong high‐frequency (λ around 0.89 × 10−13 cm) electromagnetic waves coming from infinity. We call these waves a high‐frequency cosmic background radiation, and explore the possibility of explaining gravitation by the same token. These waves push masses together, causing what we experience as gravitation. The source of these waves could be the elementary particles of the whole universe (note that the suggested wavelength is close to the size of a proton). We were just not able to prove the existence or absence of these waves.
