### THE ANOMALOUS MAGNETIC MOMENT OF THE ELECTRON

**Commentary**: This is one of many papers by which the author pursued the
task of urging for acceptance of the author's theory of the electron g-factor.
When one mentions the anomalous electron g-factor to physicists they immediately
think of QED and its remarkably precise confirmation of the physics of such
great scientists as Dirac and Feynman. Yet their emphasis is on the divergence
of that factor from the value 2.

The underlying issue that matters to this author is the explanation of why
ferromagnetic reaction measurements of the ratio of magnetic moment to angular
momentum correspond to e/mc and not e/2mc of the electron. The scientific world
at large is less concerned with this factor of 2, which is seen as a 'spin'
property that is really quite vague, and relies heavily on the minor correction
which alters 2 by a little more than one part in one thousand.

The author, however, has had to take his factor-of-two reasoning [1978c],
concerning the form and reacting properties of the electron, into that province
dominated by QED and compete with the precision derivations of QED in the hope
that physicists might listen to the case for believing in a half-field reacting
aether environment that inherently gives basis for the g-factor of 2. This is
essential if we are to understand how the aether can feed energy to us via its
action is sustaining the quantized motion of atomic electrons in a polarized
ferromagnet. The subject paper discusses how the author's theory is a contender
with QED at the level of 40 parts in 10^{12} for the anomalous component
of the electron g-factor.
