    Abstract

    It is well known that, in special relativity, Newton's third law does not hold in general. This paper presents its generalization and the relativistically valid model in which the generalized law is supposed to hold. Also the possibility of obtaining the equations of motion that satisfy the generalized law from a standard Lagrangian structure is investigated.
