Abstract [en]

A formal implementation of the concepts of mesoscopic electromagnetic interaction and of the propagating wave in quantum electrodynamics beyond the rotating wave approximation is discussed. Used as a guide, these concepts lead to a natural resolution of a long-standing controversy: causality violations in the Glauber-Kelley-Kleiner photodetection theory. The Glauber-Kelley-Kleiner definition of the time-normal operator ordering must be amended without the rotating wave approximation, which eliminates all causality problems.
