The power radiated by a moving charge is given by Larmor's formula which can be derived by integrating the Li\'enard-Wiechert potential over the whole past history of the charge. However, extracting the same result from the Lorent-Abraham-Dirac (LAD) equation of motion is problematic. This is well known for uniform proper... Show more
