We emphasize the purely kinematic origin of the Thomas precession by noting
that nothing has been said about the cause of the acceleration. If a component of
acceleration exists perpendicular to v, then there is a Thomas precession, ...
Fields (14.12) and (14.14) divide themselves naturally into "velocity fields," which
are independent of acceleration, and "acceleration fields," which depend linearly
on (3. The velocity fields are essentially static fields falling off as R~2, whereas ...
The sudden creation of a fast electron in nuclear beta decay, for example, can be
viewed for our purposes as the violent acceleration of a charged particle initially
at rest to some final velocity in a very short time interval, or, alternatively, as the ...
