Average radiation-reaction force in quantum electrodynamics

Standard invariant perturbative methods are used to derive an expression for the radiationreaction force acting on a charged particle in quantum electrodynamics. When the average change in the particle's momentum is found by taking an average over the states closest to the classical state, the result is an expression whose classical limit is the same as the classical expression for the radiation-reaction force.
