### FUNDAMENTAL CONSTANTS DERIVED FROM TWO-DIMENSIONAL HARMONIC OSCILLATIONS IN
AN ELECTRICALLY STRUCTURED VACUUM

**Abstract**: Based on a 1972 analysis of two-dimensionless harmonic
oscillations in an electrically structured vacuum, the fine-structure constant,
magnetic moment of the proton and the g-factor of the electron are all derived
theoretically and found to have values in perfect accord with measurement data.
The analysis is based on newly discovered resonant interaction.

**Commentary**: The author had been impressed by the fact that Von
Klitzing had earned the Nobel physics prize in 1985 for work closely connected
with quantum Hall phenomena as applied to the measurement of the fine-structure
constant. This was research which, in effect, replicated the orderly orbital
motion of the aether lattice charge in a two-dimensional electron gas. Bearing
in mind that the author's theory of the vacuum medium has vacuum charge in a
two-dimensional motion, which gives the fundamental foundation for the
fine-structure constant, this work of Von Klitzing was clear vindication of the
author's methods. The subject paper was essentially a review paper to which was
added the new discovery of a resonant standing wave model for the proton
magnetic moment. The theoretical value is the same as the measured value to the
part per million precision of six significant digits.
