Abstract

Leading corrections to Planck's formula and photon thermodynamics arising from the pair-mediated photon-photon interaction are calculated. This interaction is attractive and causes an increase in occupation number for all modes. Possible consequences, including the role of the cosmic photon gas in structure formation, are considered.
