In the previous sections, almost all the results are obtained under the supposition that a character of the emitter motion has been prescribed. The physical factors providing this motion are deliberately ignored. Evidently, such statement of the problem is not quite correct. Really, the electromagnetic radiation always carries away certain amounts of the emitter energy and momentum. These losses either alter the corresponding characteristics of the emitter motion or have to be compensated by an external field providing the given motion.
