Abstract

A topological quantum interplay between the magnetic flux and the mass has been investigated, for the case of an electron, by evaluating a gauge-invariant phase factor (a Wilson loop) linked to the electromagnetic gauge field of the particle. In particular, from this phase factor and the quantization of the magnetic flux variations, a relationship between the mass at rest of the electron and its self-energy , arising from radiative corrections, has been obtained also within a QED approach. Besides, a formulation of an energy scale comparable to the energy at rest of an electron-positron pair is proposed. Remarkably, a reckoning of the Bohr energy of a W+ W- pair is compatible with constants and parameters usually employed within the electroweak theory and comparable to the energy at rest of an electron-positron pair.
