A Toy Model of Electrodynamics in (1 + 1) Dimensions
Boozer, A. D.
European Journal of Physics, v28 n3 p447-464 May 2007
A model is presented that describes a scalar field interacting with a point particle in (1+1) dimensions. The model exhibits many of the same phenomena that appear in classical electrodynamics, such as radiation and radiation damping, yet has a much simpler mathematical structure. By studying these phenomena in a highly simplified model, the physical concepts involved may be more easily understood. (Contains 12 footnotes and 2 figures.)
