Abstract

The present paper derives the radiative corrections for the electron and positron cores in the Planck vacuum theory, leading to the electron and position particles in a 7-dimension spacetime. The physical meaning of the fine structure constant is twofold: it is the ratio of the electron spin coefficient to the electron-core spin coefficient; and it is the probability that an electron or positron will emit or absorb a photon. The nature of this photon defines the spin quanta in the PV theory. Results suggest that the Feynman and Schwinger QED calculations refer to the PV state. Finally, the closed-loop electron-positron pairs in the Feynman diagrams are explained.
