THE infra-red catastrophe in the higher-order radiative corrections to electron scattering has been well known and shown to disappear when the virtual processes are considered along with the real processes of the same order. It will be, perhaps, worth investigating the problem of infra-red catastrophe in the case of higher-order radiative corrections to the Compton effect and Bremsstrahlung for an electron. In the present communication the results of the calculations for the second-order corrections to the Compton effect and Bremsstrahlung by the co-variant formalism of Feynman–Dyson are given. The graphs of the two processes are similar and given below:
