- A generalization of a previous study has the goal to analyze the properties of four quantized, coupled electromagnetic circuits, which represent a perturbed SU4-symmetry and SU3 is rigorously preserved. External electromagnetic fields (vector potential) can be included in similar fashion as the Pauli or Dirac equation, but it is necessary to pass from electric charges of the circuits to charge and current densities. The transition from a chain of discrete charges to a continuum is equivalent to well-known transitions in quantum theory of solids and leads to a quantized telegrapher's equation. Applications are given in molecular physics (intersystem crossing via spin-orbit coupling) and in the domain of nuclear interactions in nuclear and particle physics.
