Interests: Toroidal Ring, Electromagnetism, Classical Interpretation of Quantum and Relativistic Phenomena Age: 64
Alvaro Valenzuela was born in Santiago de Chile on August 3, 1952. He initiated engineering studies in 1970 at the University of Chile, institution where he was appointed assistant professor on ?Electromagnetic Fields?, ?Electromagnetism? and ?Antennas?. He obtained a BSc degree in 1975 and an Electrical Engineering title in 1977. He has co-authored some papers related to electromagnetic waves in the journals ?Electronic Letters? and ?IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation?.
In 1980 he joined the Chilean Air Force as a Civil Servant, institution where he currently works. He has served abroad in South Africa (1990-1992), England (1994-1995, 1997-1998) and France (2008-2009). In 1998 he obtained a MSc degree on Satellite Engineering at the University of Surrey.
In 1994 he initiated independent research on classical extended electron models, specializing in the time invariant solutions of Maxwell equations in toroidal coordinates, using analytical and numerical (over relaxation) procedures that he programs in C++. A related area of research is the classical interpretation of quantum and relativistic phenomena. The main findings of his research are summarized in the paper ?The Revenge of Old Classical Physics: No Space for Photons or Relativity?, published by Galilean Electrodynamics, September-October 2009 issue.
