The length of the 4-vector p, is a Lorentz invariant quantity which is characteristic
of the particle: 2 (p → p) = (p'' p') = — : (12.5) In the rest frame of the particle (p = 0
) the scalar product (12.5) gives the energy of the particle at rest: - E' = 2 (12.6) ...
Since (p → p) = —m”, we see that for a free particle y L, is a constant, yL, - – A (
12.72) Then the action is proportional to the integral of the proper time over the
path from the initial space-time point a to the final space-time point b. This
integral is ...
15.5 Weizsäcker-Williams Method of Virtual Quanta The emission of
bremsstrahlung and other processes involving the electromagnetic interaction of
relativistic particles can be viewed in a way that is very helpful in providing
physical insight ...
