In page 958 of the sixth edition of Fundamentals of Physics, by D. Halliday, R.
Resnick and J. Walker (John Wiley, 2001), it is stated that "in 1969 an
alternative explanation for the photoelectric effect was found that did not
need the concept of photons", but no reference is given. What is this
alternative explanation? Where can I find more information about this subject?
