Title: Maxwell electromagnetic theory, Planck's radiation law, and Bose-Einstein statistics

Abstract: We give an example in which it is possible to understand quantum statistics using classical concepts. This is done by studying the interaction of charged-matter oscillator with the thermal and zeropoint electromagnetic fields characteristic of quantum electrodynamics and classical stochastic electrodynamics. Plack's formula for the spectral distribution and the elements of energy h omega are interpreted without resorting to discontinuities. We also show the aspects in which our model calculation complement other derivations of the blackbody radiation spectrum without quantum assumptions.
