### THE ANOMALOUS MAGNETIC MOMENT OF THE ELECTRON

**Commentary**: This is one of many papers by which the author pursued the task of urging for acceptance of the author's theory of the electron g-factor. When one mentions the anomalous electron g-factor to physicists they immediately think of QED and its remarkably
precise confirmation of the physics of such great scientists as Dirac and Feynman. Yet their emphasis is on the divergence of that factor from the value 2.

The underlying issue that matters to this author is the explanation of why ferromagnetic reaction measurements of the ratio of magnetic moment to angular momentum correspond to e/mc and not e/2mc of the electron. The scientific world at large is less concerned with this factor of 2, which is seen as a 'spin' property that is really quite
vague, and relies heavily on the minor correction which alters 2 by a little more than one part in one thousand.

The author, however, has had to take his factor-of-two reasoning [1978c], concerning the form and reacting properties of the electron, into that province dominated by QED and compete with the precision derivations of QED in the hope that physicists might listen to the case for believing in a half-field reacting aether environment that inherently gives basis for the g-factor of 2. This is essential if we are to understand how the aether can feed energy to us via its action is sustaining the quantized motion of atomic electrons in a polarized ferromagnet. The subject paper discusses how the author's theory is a contender with QED at the level of 40 parts in 10^{12} for the anomalous component of the electron g-factor.
