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

Sorry, in my haste I did not notice the words "both frames" in your post
(below). The general proof shows that momentum is conserved in inertial
frames. We do not expect momentum to be conserved in non-inertial frames.

You also wrote:
I'm aware of the traditional explanation, but no one has yet shown me
that the momentum of particles plus fields is conserved in both
frames, for the specific cases I gave.

The general proof exists in standard E/M texts (Jackson, Panofsky &
Phillips, etc)
