Re: 4/3 problem resolution/Action-reaction paradox in pdf format

I have not yet found the time to read your provoking writings, but let me
raise one question which I have noticed. You correctly state that the
Maxwellian forces of interaction between two electrons are not, in the
general case, "equal and opposite." You then state that these forces ARE
equal snd opposite in the CM frame, "because of symmetry". I doubt the
truth of this latter statement - please prove.

Subject: 4/3 problem resolution/Action-reaction paradox in pdf format

I've written up my "4/3 Problem Resolution" (electromagnetic mass) and
"Action-Reaction Paradox Resolution" in pdf format. Conventional vector,
electric field, magnetic field, and vector potential notation is used in
the descriptions to make them a little easier to follow.

The "4/3 Problem Resolution" is at

and the "Action-Reaction Paradox Resolution" is at

These non-relativistic, three-dimensional, treatments are based on the
relativistic, four-dimensional equations in the paper on my webpage at
