On Vibrating, Charged Objects   This article discusses action forces and reaction forces and how they combine in equations.

Oscillating Charge and the Emitted Radiant Energy per Cycle.   In this article the radiant power emitted by an oscillating point charge is discussed. Two formulas are considered: (1) the Larmor-Lienard formula, and (2) the Abraham-Lorentz formula. Both formulas are relativistically rigorous. Thus each applies to cases where the maximum speed of oscillation may range up to ~c. Consideration is limited to one dimension, where a point charge moves back and forth along the x-axis.
