## Main Question or Discussion Point

One author states that "the usual Maxwell field is the quantum wave function for a single photon" - see http://arxiv.org/ftp/quant-ph/papers/0604/0604169.pdf

Is it correct that a single photon can be described using Maxwell's equations - or do the Maxwell equations only describe the behaviour of large numbers of photons?
