Generalization of the Larmor radiation formula

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The Larmor radiation formula relates the momentum radiated toward infinity along a light cone from a single point charge to the velocity and acceleration of the particle. The formula applies only to a light cone whose apex is on the world line of the particle. This paper generalizes the Larmor formula to an arbitrary light cone. An example involving circular motion is worked.
