Mass Without Mass

Authors: Jean Louis Van Belle

This paper revisits the oscillator model of an electron, applying Wheeler’s ‘mass without mass’ concept to the Zitterbewegung model of an electron. We then use this model to derive the electron properties (spin, magnetic moment, energy, etcetera). We also use this model to calculate the Zitterbewegung force and the implied energy densities inside of the electron. Finally, we offer some reflections on how this simple but complete ‘mass without mass’ model may provide a basis for a more complete realist interpretation of quantum mechanics.
