Do fields have quantum fluctuations and are non-zero in the vacuum?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Non-zero in the same way that for a harmonic oscillator the wave function is non-zero for values of the position of the harmonic oscillator?

Or are they considered as 'mathematical fiction' just as 'virtual' particles?

thanks
