Abstract

In a first step we have tried to show that very probably in Quantumelectrodynamics (QED) due to vacuum polarization effects the original bare charges of electrons and positrons are smeared out so much that their original divergent energy distances from the vacuum energy become finite. Furthermore, we have sketched how one has to generalize the calculations to refine the considerations presented in this paper.
