At the Institute of Electrical Engineering of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR (now Institute of Electrodynamics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Kyiv) for the first time in the USSR a small electronic computer was created.
Its observation will help test general relativity under extreme gravity, quantum electrodynamics under extreme magnetic fields as well as quantum chromodynamics under extreme density.
Objects related by the electromagnetic and gravitational interaction are governed by nonlinear electrodynamics coupled to gravity.
However, when the field is strong enough the linear Maxwell's theory becomes invalid; the nonlinearities of electromagnetic field should be introduced as the correct electrodynamics. In 1930s, Born and Infeld proposed nonlinear electrodynamics with the aim of obtaining a finite value of the self-energy of electron [1].
Holten [5] discussed the classical and quantum electrodynamics of spinning particles.
His most notable work was on quantum electrodynamics and in 1965, together with Sin-Itiro Tomonaga and Julian Schwinger, he received the Nobel Prize in physics "for their fundamental work in quantum electrodynamics, with deep-ploughing consequences for the physics of elementary particles" (4).
