Here we continue the discussion of the nature of elementary particles based on the theory of electrodynamics (generalized Maxwell equations [1]). As is noted in [1], such a theory should exist because photons partake in a variety of reactions in which they turn elementary particles into particles of other forms while having the property of being a quantum of an electromagnetic field. Unlike the widely accepted theory of point particles, we propose that particles are not “elementary” particles (i.e. without structure) but rather complex formations. The attractive feature of our proposed theory is that it only operates on two quantities: the electric field E and the magnetic field H. The multitude of particles is determined via their configuration, analogous to waves in waveguides [2]. Such a comparison is naturally intuitive and purely qualitative. We give an approximate solution to the static field of the electron and we show that only over a large distance from the center of the particle the field exhibits the character of being purely electric, spherically symmetric, and conforming to Coulomb’s law. However, close to the center it does not exhibit the same behavior and the static magnetic field can even surpass the electric field in magnitude.
