Curvature radiation


tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Accelerated charged particles radiate
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Particles constrained to move along field
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Curved field lines result in radiation

Precisely which of the above mechanisms really contributes is as yet unclear!
