Radiation reaction in relativisitic dynamics of Stueckelberg

What is it about?

A derivation of radiation reaction force, and how it seems to be consistent with everyday reality of non-self-accelerating charges, as is the case in classical Lorentz Dirac equation. Various possible orbits show that eventually, in finite time, the particle becomes inertial, though some exotic conditions are possible where the mass can shift.
