Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Supposing that someone had come up with the hypothese of electron tunneling before the discoveries and mathematical structure of QM... Solely within the Maxwell-Lorentz mathematical structure :

1) Could it have been proven that tunneling was impossible ??

2) Could it have been predictably quantified? Probabilities of occurence calculated for ranges of energy levels , ranges of potential barrier penetration for energy levels etc.

My knowledge of electrodynamics is totally insufficient to have any real idea so I am hoping that someone who knows both classic and QM might have some kind of answer available.

Thanks
