Quick and Easy Derivation of the Electron's Electromagnetic Mass: a Comment on Physics-Uspekhi 54 (4) 371-374 (2011)

Authors: Ron Bourgoin

Obtaining the electron's electromagnetic mass has just been made much easier now that the electron has been measured to be aspheric. We show here that the electron can be modeled as a right circular cylinder whose front face is connected to its back face. We show that there must be a circulating magnetic field along the axis of this ring.
