# Order reductions of Lorentz - Dirac-like equations

@article{Aguirregabiria1997OrderRO, title={Order reductions of Lorentz - Dirac-like equations}, author={Juan M. Aguirregabiria and A. Hern'andez and M Rivas}, journal={Journal of Physics A}, year={1997}, volume={30} }

We discuss the phenomenon of pre-acceleration in the light of a method of successive approximations used to construct the physical order reduction of a large class of singular equations. A simple but illustrative physical example is analysed to gain more insight into the convergence properties of the method.

This work considers the Einstein equation with first-order (semiclassical) quantum corrections to give analytic and numerical solutions or reduced equations for particular examples, including Friedmann-Lema universes with a cosmological constant, a spherical body of constant density, and more general conformally flat metrics.

It is suggested that if traversable wormholes do exist as solutions to the semiclassical equations, they cannot be macroscopic but must be ``Planck scale'', in agreement with conclusions drawn by Ford and Roman from entirely independent arguments.
