The mathematical computation leading from Eq.(65) and ending with Eq.(69) can be
extended without any effort to T.M. radiation. The extension consists of
replacing a T.E. source with a corresponding T.M. source,
Consequently, the formula for the flow of T.M. radiant energy due to an
electric dipole subject to uniform linear acceleration is
The justification for this extension is Eqs.(58) and (34). They are the same for T.E. and T.M. radiation. The
radiation intensity expressed by Eq.(70) extends the familiar Larmor formula for radiation from an
inertially moving electric dipole [#!Landau1962!#] to one which is
accelerated linearly and uniformly.
