Haha! I don't know anybody here in Glasgow who eats Mars bars, never mind the infamous deep-fried Mars bar (everything is deep-fried here)... but when I was at University there were urban legends of top scientists having to pay for expensive flights to give Mars bars to their collaborators abroad because they lost bets with them!

I prefer PB Maxes. But I haven't been able to find one since I moved back to NY from IN.

but when I was at University ...
When I was at University (not there) I came a cross a of economic comparison known as the Mars bar theory.

The theory ran that Mars is a solid well run company that has been around for many decades with essentially the same product.

A good relative economic indicator over the years is the value of a Mars bar in terms of the time it takes to earn the cost of one, or other economic variable of interest in relation to the price of that bar on the day.

How can an expanding electromagnetic field be quantized?

Quantum fields exist all throughout space. We can quantize the field by starting with the assumption that the field is generated by an infinite collection of oscillators. The rest deals with operator methods. It doesn't matter if the electromagnetic fields is "expanding."

I don't know how to further help you as I don't know what level of Physics you have learned. Indeed I have yet to see that any of your posts on different topics indicate any grasp of the basics. Stick with the more introductory topics that you might be able to understand and learn from.

Thread closed.
