Relativistic Quantum Theory for Finite Time Intervals 
If transition probabilities are evaluated for transitions occuring during a finite time interval, additional divergencies occur different from those commonly encountered for infinite time intervals. The expressions obtained can however be made convergent, if an indeterminacy of time is attributed to each epoch of observation. The method is applied to the emission of a photon by a free electron.
