After reading the book "QED" by R. Feynman I was wondering especially with regard to the famouns mirror example of Fig. 24 (p.43), where the probability of detecting photons at point P is derived simply by adding arrows, how big would be the difference in terms of the length of the total arrow if we try to calculate the total field at point P via classical electrodynamics based on a rigorous solution of Maxwell's equations and compare the result with QED ? I would be also very grateful if you could recommend me some other good books about QED . Thank you .
Re: how big is the difference between classical and quantum electrodynamics ?
