The Motion of a Charge Particle in a Uniform Magnetic Field

By Andrea Prosperetti


We study the motion of a classical (nonquantal) charged particle in a uniform magnetic field by means of i) the Abraham-Lorentz equation, ii) the Dirac relativistic equation and iii) the Caldirola nonrelativistic, finite-difference equation. In cases i) and iii) closed-form solutions are obtained. For case ii) we apply for the first time the twovariable asymptotic method which enables us to obtain a uniformly valid approximate solution free of the secular terms present in the results of previous authors
