We consider the Dirac equation for the classical spinor field placed in an external, time-dependent electromagnetic field of the form typical for scattering settings: $$F=F^\mathrm{ret}+F^\mathrm{in}=F^\mathrm{adv}+F^\mathrm{out}$$ , where the current producing $$F^{\mathrm{ret}/\mathrm{adv}}$$ has past and future asymptotes homogeneous of degree $$-3$$ , and the free fields $$F^{\mathrm{in}/\mathrm{out}}$$ are radiation fields produced by currents with similar asymptotic behavior. We show…

We propose a mathematically rigorous construction of the scattering matrix and the interacting fields in models of relativistic perturbative quantum field theory with massless fields and long-range
Finite Quantum Electrodynamics
In this book the author carefully analyses the role of the concept of causality in Quantum Electrodynamics. This approach makes it possible for the first time to publish a textbook on QED which not
Semidirect product of CCR and CAR algebras and asymptotic states in quantum electrodynamics
A C*-algebra containing the CCR and CAR algebras as its subalgebras and naturally described as the semidirect product of these algebras is discussed. A particular example of this structure is

Asymptotic charges, large gauge transformations and inequivalence of different gauges in external current QED
Abstract In this paper we consider external current QED in the Coulomb gauge and in axial gauges for various spatial directions of the axis. For a non-zero electric charge of the current, we

Charged particles in external fields. I. Classical theory
A general perturbation theory is presented which can be used to study the interaction of relativistic charged particles with external fields. The theory is applied to the classical Dirac and
Electrodynamics is formulated so as to be manifestly invariant under general gauge transformations, through being built up entirely in terms of gauge-invariant dynamical variables. The quantization
Charged particles in external fields
The second-quantized Dirac and Klein-Gordon equations with external fields are solved. It is shown that the interpolating field is local and satisfies the Yang-Feldman equations. The Capri-Wightman
