Paper Abstract

The mathematical model of light, using the simple summation of sine waves, gives excellent predictive capabilities for light. It predicts the results of the interactions for components of light, e.g., photons. However, it cannot provide a valid physical model of their interactions or of the photons themselves. This paper attempts to provide such a model that also fits and explains the known characteristics of light and its interactions. The simplest version of this model assumes that there exists, within a photon, source terms that produce the observed and mathematically modeled, transverse electric and magnetic fields. The nature and consequence of such sources is explored. This is a ‘what if’, rather than a ‘how’ and ‘why’, paper.
