I would like to acquire white hat on planck's constant and classical ideas regarding quantum mechanics and the origin of planck's constant.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For example, Timothy Boyer suggests a classical derivation of blackbody radiation by employing stochastic electrodynamics ideas. Dr. Hestenes proposes a new interpretation of the electron and Dirac's theory while Mendel Sachs derives Quantum Mechanics as a linear limit of a nonlinear general relativistic theory of gravitation and electromagnetism in which photons are a superfluous concept. Several physicists suggest a nonlinear theory of electromagnetism is needed. Einstein and Planck noted long ago that the dimensions of h and e^2/c were the same.There are papers that suggest the origin of planck's constant in the topology of group theory. Edwin Jaynes had an idea about parametric coupling to explain why an electron bound to an atom didn't appear to radiate and also proposed ideas regarding a conservation of action law.

Can anyone add some more neo-classical ideas that have been around or that have been recently proposed?
