Abstract

Interference phenomena such as the celebrated double slit experiment in optics are familiar to every first year physics student. Equally familiar although much overlooked is the text book problem of the scattering of a system of nonrelativstic charged particles, where one finds that dipole radiation vanishes identically if the colliding particles all have equal charge to mass ratio.
