I will discuss the properties of the blackbody spectrum, obtained by direct numerical solution of the classical equations of motion of a one-dimensional model that contains the essential general features of the field-matter interaction. Our results, which do not rely on any statistical assumption, show that the classical blackbody spectrum exhibits remarkable properties: (i) a quasistationary state characterized by scaling properties, (ii) consistency with the Stefan-Boltzmann law, and (iii) a high-frequency cutoff.
