An interaction between electron and photon.
? . . when there is a change of state the electron either releases
or absorbs a photon and its location changes from one discrete
energy pattern to another discrete energy pattern around the nucleus.
. . . . these things,
they are very well explained by the standard model of physics?
/ from an email /
How can an electron ( slower than c ) emit photon at c=1?
' Now take the electron. Even if its velocity is close to that
of light ? 10^10 cm/s ? it will have a momentum of only
about 10^-17 g cm/s. The gamma photon used for
illumination has a very short wavelength ( say, 6 10^13 cm)
and a momentum of 10^-14, which is thousands of times that
of the electron. So, when a photon hits an electron, it is like
a railway train smashing into a baby- carriage.?

Opinions, please.
