Time domain calculation of the electromagnetic selfforce on eccentric geodesics in Schwarzschild spacetime
Abstract
I calculate the selfforce acting on a particle with electric charge q moving on a generic geodesic around a Schwarzschild black hole. Using methods similar to those developed for the scalar field case discussed in a previous paper, I investigate the relative sizes of the conservative (halfadvanced plus halfretarded) and dissipative (halfadvanced minus halfretarded) pieces of the selfforce. I also display the regularization parameters used in the modesum regularization scheme.
