This chapter examines the relations between the arrow of radiation and other temporal arrows. It looks at the ‘puzzle of the arrow of radiation’ by Einstein and Popper, partly to correct misinterpretations of their views and introduce several themes that will be relevant in Chapter 7 when an answer is proposed for this puzzle. Two proposed solutions to the puzzle: Rohrlich’s discussion of an asymmetric particle equation, and Anderson’s appeal to a finite energy requirement are considered.

Keywords:   arrow of radiation, temporal arrows, asymmetric particle equations, finite energy
