Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

It is proved that runaway solutions persist if Abraham's force -m {Mathematical expression} is generalised by adding to it a finite number of terms which are linear in higher derivatives of {Mathematical expression}. The implication of this result to Eliezer's relativistic generalisation of the Lorentz-Dirac equation is discussed.
