Study of the Radiation Reaction Force for a Step Electric Field and an Electromagnetic Pulse

The motions of a spin-less point-like charged particle predicted by the Landau-Lifshitz equation and the Hammond method are obtained for a step electric field, a smooth step electric field and an

Charged particle motion and radiation in strong electromagnetic fields

The dynamics of charged particles in electromagnetic fields is an essential component of understanding the most extreme environments in our Universe. In electromagnetic fields of sufficient

Plasma physics in strong-field regimes: Theories and simulations

In strong electromagnetic fields, unique plasma phenomena and applications emerge whose description requires recently developed theories and simulations [Y. Shi, Ph.D. thesis, Princeton University



Radiation reaction of a classical quasi-rigid extended particle

The problem of the self-interaction of a quasi-rigid classical particle with an arbitrary spherically symmetric charge distribution is completely solved up to the first order in the acceleration. No

The significance of the Schott energy for energy-momentum conservation of a radiating charge obeying the Lorentz–Abraham–Dirac equation

It is shown that energy and momentum are conserved during the runaway motion of a radiating charge and during free fall of a charge in a gravitational field. The runaway motion demonstrates the

Radiation Reaction in Nonrelativistic Quantum Electrodynamics

We derive the Heisenberg operator equation of motion for a nonrelativistic point electron coupled to the quantized electromagnetic field, including radiation reaction. The derivation proceeds in

Experimental evidence of quantum radiation reaction in aligned crystals

The authors provide the signature of radiation reaction in quantum electrodynamics by observing the radiation reaction effects when high-energy positrons emit radiation while propagating through a  silicon crystal.

Relativistic dynamics of a charged sphere : updating the Lorentz-Abraham model

Abstract : The primary purpose of this work is to determine an equation of motion for the classical Lorentz model of the electron that is consistent with causal solutions to the Maxwell-Lorentz

New Equation of Motion for Classical Charged Particles

With the intuitive new ideas that (1) in classical electrodynamics, radiation reaction should be expressible by the external field and the charge's kinematics, (2) a charge experiences, in addition

Electrodynamics of Hyperbolically Accelerated Charges: III. Energy–Momentum of the Field of a Hyperbolically Moving Charge

Abstract We give a detailed description of the energy–momentum relationships of the Bondi–Gold field. The Schott field is separated into a near field and a radiation field. The physical significance

On the History of the Radiation Reaction

Apparently, Kepler considered the pointing of comets’ tails away from the Sun as evidence for radiation pressure of light [2]. Following Newton’s third law (see p. 83 of [3]), one might suppose there

Electrodynamics of Hyperbolically Accelerated Charges. IV. Energy-Momentum Conservation of Radiating Charged Particles

Abstract The relativistic equation of motion of a radiating charge is discussed with special emphasis upon a clarification of the significance of the Schott energy for the energy-momentum
