|Title:||On the solutions of the Lorentz-Dirac equation|
|Abstract:||We discuss the unstable character of the solutions of the Lorentz-Dirac equation and stress the need of methods like order reduction to derive a physically acceptable equation of motion. The discussion is illustrated with the paradigmatic example of the non-relativistic harmonic oscillator with radiation reaction. We also illustrate the removal of the noncausal pre-acceleration with the introduction of a small correction in the Lorentz-Dirac equation.|
