On a recent thread about virtual particles I think Tom pointed out that QED can be solved non-perturbatively. Would anyone in the know please sketch out the basic steps, introductory papers, or Google searches. It sounded like we can dispense with virtual particles?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks for any help!
