The relation between classical and quantum electrodynamics Mario Bacelar Valente ABSTRACT: Quantum electrodynamics presents intrinsic limitations in the description of physical processes that make it impossible to recover from it the type of description we have in classical electrodynamics.

Hence one cannot consider classical. point particles; it obscures certain features of dynamics so that concepts such as chaos theory took over years to discover; and it’s not at all clear what the relationship is between Newton’s classical laws and quantum physics.
