Quantum Mechanics of the Einstein-Hopf Model.
Milonni, P. W.
American Journal of Physics, v49 n2 p177-84 Feb 1981
The Einstein-Hopf model for the thermodynamic equilibrium between the electromagnetic field and dipole oscillators is considered within the framework of quantum mechanics. Both the wave and particle aspects of the Einstein fluctuation formula are interpreted in terms of the fundamental absorption and emission processes. (Author/SK)
