The meaning Langevin gives the electromagnetic mass is the same meaning given to the inertial mass; as inertia ratio between the force applied to the electron and the acceleration experienced by this.
Lorentz analysis considers the electron mass constituted by the inertial mass and an electromagnetic mass. Besides the need to introduce evidence forces a different electromagnetic to counteract the effects of electrostatic repulsion  nature.
In the classical Lorentz theory of electron, the self-energy is closely connected to the electromagnetic mass of the electron.
Then the effective mass [m.sub.z] in the zeropoint field is approximately equal to the electromagnetic mass which is proportional to the electromagnetic potential due to charge e at the center of mass position.
Its internal structure includes the equatorial disk of a rotating de Sitter vacuum which has a perfect conductor and ideal diamagnetic properties, displays superconducting behavior , and supplies a particle with the finite positive electromagnetic mass related to interior de Sitter vacuum and breaking of spacetime symmetry [69, 71, 73].
The mass m, appearing in a spinning solution, is the finite positive electromagnetic mass m = M(r [right arrow] [infinity]), generically related to interior de Sitter vacuum and to breaking of spacetime symmetry [69, 73].
This paper concerns the technique known as electromagnetic mass spectroscopy, in which atoms interact with magnetic fields (known to physicists and engineers as "B-fields").
In the derivation of (2) Dirac stayed within the framework of the Maxwell equations; so the m on the left side is a derived electromagnetic mass for the electron.
is the electromagnetic mass correction; e (= [e.sub.*] [square root of [alpha]]) is the observed electronic charge; a is the fine structure constant; [e.sub.*] is the true or bare electronic charge; [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] is the cutoff wavenumber for the mass correction [2, 5]; [m.sub.*] and [r.sub.*] (= [e.sup.2.sub.*]/[m.sub.*][c.sup.2]) are the mass and Compton radius of the Planck particles in the PV; m and [m.sub.0] are the observed and bare electron masses; and F is some external force driving the electron.
These two radii are related in terms of electromagnetic masses [??] by [N.sub.p] [approximately equal to] [10.sup.40], one of the numbers of Dirac's Large Number Hypothesis (LNH).
It must be remembered that the gravitational force acts on the gravitational masses of the protons, which are reduced to the magnitude of the electromagnetic masses by the LNH factor;
