|Title:||An Abraham-Lorentz-like equation for the electron from the worldline variational approach to QED|
|Citation:||European Physical Journal C: Particles and Fields, 2004; 37(2):161-171|
|Abstract:||The variational equation for the mean square displacement of the electron in the polaron worldline approach to quenched QED can be cast into a form which closely resembles the classical Abraham-Lorentz equation but without the conceptual and practical diseases of the latter. The connection with delay equations describing field retardation effects is also established. As applications we solve this integro-differential equation numerically for various values of the coupling constant and cut-off and re-derive the variational approximation to the anomalous mass dimension of the electron found recently.|
