Self-field, radiated energy, and radiated linear momentum of an accelerated point charge

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

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.
