Abstract. We continue in this paper the analysis of the classical dynamics of
the point limit of the MaxwellLorentz system in dipole approximation
( the PauliFierz model ).
Here, as a first step towards considering the full nonlinear system, we
study the case in which a nonlinear external field of force
is present. We study the flow of the regularized ( namely with an
extended particle ) system, and show that it converges
in the appropriate norm, as the radius of the particle tends to zero,
to the flow of a closed coupled system of equations, containing the
renormalized mass only, which so provides the very definition of
the dynamics of the system in the point limit.
The AbrahamLorentzDirac equation for the particle position is deduced
and turns out to be, in this
description, a boundary condition on the vector potential,
giving the evolution of its singularity. Moreover, the Hamiltonian
structure of the limit system is displayed, and it is shown that the
standard Hamiltonian of the PauliFierz model converges to the
Hamiltonian of the limit system here given.
