An analysis of the quantum electrodynamics of an atomic medium and an electron gas by means of a four-dimensional technique developed by Feynman. This process entails calculating and examining the photon propagator in the medium, describing the resulting dispersion relations, and obtaining the energy loss experienced by fast incident charged particles passing through the medium.
