Bodies coupled to electromagnetic or other long-range fields are subject to radiation reaction and other effects in which their own fields can influence their motion. Self-force phenomena such as these have been poorly understood for spacetime dimensions not equal to four, despite the relevance of differing dimensionalities for holographic duals, effectively two-dimensional condensed matter and fluid systems, and so on. We remedy this by showing that forces and torques acting on extended…

This review surveys the theory of gravitational self- force in curved spacetime and its application to the astrophysical inspiral problem, and highlights the way in which self-force calculations make a fruitful contact with other approaches to the two-body problem and help inform an accurate universal model of binary black hole inspirals, valid across all mass ratios.
Self-action in gravity
On a particle moving with variable acceleration in the flat space-time affects the self-force due to outgoing radiation. The gravitational fields bring an additional contribution to self-force due to


Dynamics of Charged Particles and their Radiation Field
The motion of a charged particle interacting with its own electromagnetic field is an area of research that has a long history; this problem has never ceased to fascinate its investigators. On the

(1) Anfangsgründe der Maxwellschen Theorie, verknüpft mit der Elektronentheorie (2) The Theory of Electrons, and its Applications to the Phenomena of Light and Radiant Heat
Abstract(1) THE first of these volumes deals with the foundations of Maxwell's electromagnetic theory. The author is careful to point out that it is not a text-book, but a sketch based on lectures
I and i
There is, I think, something ethereal about i —the square root of minus one, which seems an odd beast at that time—an intruder hovering on the edge of reality.
