Key reference is the monograph by Barry
Setterfield: *Cosmology
and the Zero Point Energy*
(Natural Philosophy Alliance Monograph series, No.1, 2013, ISBN 978-1-304-19508-1).

The most important element in Setterfield's book is the Zero Point Energy (ZPE) or Zero
Point Field (ZPF), but it is not an invention of his own (as will be admitted by the author
himself, without doubt). Associated with the ZPF are the names of several persons.
To mention two of them:

Bernard Haisch has his own website and he is the director of his own company (not quite a shocking fact these days):

- Articles by Bernard Haisch

So far so good about the mathematical machinery. Because I'm lazy (sometimes), I had to assume
that it is correct. And I've been heading for end results only. This is what I've found.

*At page 690 on the left:*
The ZPF-determined inertial mass associated with the parton oscillator is
$$
m_i = \Gamma \frac{\hbar \omega_c^2}{2\pi c^2} \qquad (110)
$$
A simple estimate, using this value of $m_i$, as done by Puthoff [2], gives
$\omega_c = (2\pi)^{1/2} \omega_P$ where $\omega_P$ is the Planck frequency
$\omega_P = (c^5/\hbar G)^{1/2}$ and $G$ is the Newtonial gravitational constant. Hence:
$$
m_i = (\Gamma \omega_P)\frac{\hbar \omega_P}{c^2} = \frac{2}{3} \alpha \frac{m_P^2}{m_0}
\qquad (111)
$$
where $\alpha$ is the fine-structure constant $\alpha=e^2/\hbar c$, and $m_P = \hbar\omega_P/c^2$
is the so-called Planck mass.
*At page 690 on the right:*
The unknown free parameter is, of course, the parton mass $m_0$, or, entirely equivalently,
the Abraham-Lorentz damping constant, $\Gamma = 2e^2/3m_0c^2$.

Alright. So what we actually have accomplished in the end is: almost NOTHING. The chain is as
weak as its weakest link. And the weakest link is that there is no way to assign a value to $m_0$.
If the calculations are correct - let's assume that they are - then all that has been demonstrated
is that there exists sort of a quantity $m_i$ that behaves in much the same way as an inertial mass.
Interesting perhaps, but without further quantification rather useless.

Remarkably enough, *Inertia as a
zero-point-field Lorentz force* has a more recent successor
(2013), which is found in the list of Articles by Bernard Haisch as:

Basic ideas of Haisch & Puthoff et al. are also found back among Electric Universe adherents, such as Wallace Thornhill in:
