dc.description.abstractBy an orthodox application of the perturbation theory to the general case of a quantized field, it is shown that the divergence difficulty hitherto encountered arises from a faulty application of the expansion method. The difficulty disappears if the degeneracy of the unperturbed system is properly treated by the method of secular perturbation. Physically, it is shown that this amounts to a rigorous treatment of the radiation reaction.en
