Lecturer: Dr. Yaron Hadad Affiliation: Tel Aviv University Abstract: The problem of radiation-reaction plagued classical electromagnetism since it was introduced by Maxwell in 1861. Radiation- reaction is the recoil force exerted on an accelerating charge by its own radiation field. In the last century radiation-reaction resisted more than a dozen of attempts on a solution, most notably by Dirac, Landau & Lifshitz.
