Abstract

Working within the framework of the classical theory of electrodynamics, we derive an exact mathematical solution to the problem of self-field (or radiation reaction) of an accelerated point-charge traveling in free space. We obtain relativistic expressions for the self-field as well as the rates of radiated energy and linear momentum without the need to renormalize the particle's mass-or to discard undesirable infinities.
