@article{Heffernan2017AcceleratedMA, title={Accelerated motion and the self-force in Schwarzschild spacetime}, author={Anna Heffernan and Adrian C Ottewill and Niels Warburton and Barry Wardell and Peter Diener}, journal={Classical and Quantum Gravity}, year={2017}, volume={35} }

We provide expansions of the Detweiler–Whiting singular field for a particle with a scalar field moving along arbitrary, planar accelerated trajectories in Schwarzschild spacetime. We transcribe these results into mode-sum regularization parameters, computing previously unknown terms that increase the convergence rate of the mode-sum. We test our results by computing the self-force along a variety of accelerated trajectories. For non-uniformly accelerated circular orbits we present results from…
