Resummation of quantum radiation reaction and induced polarization

Torgrimsson, G.

In a previous paper we proposed a new method based on resummations for studying radiation reaction of an electron in a plane-wave electromagnetic field. In this paper we use this method to study the electron momentum expectation value for a circularly polarized monochromatic field with a0=1, for which standard locally constant-field methods cannot be used. We also find that radiation reaction has a significant effect on the induced polarization, as compared to the results without radiation reaction, i.e., the Sokolov-Ternov formula for a constant field, or the zero result for a circularly monochromatic field. We also study the Abraham-Lorentz-Dirac equation using Borel-Padé resummations.
