In poetry:

Though swelling waves oft beat him back,
And tempests make him half a wreck,
And passions strong, with dangerous tack,
Retard his course,
Yet Christ the pilot all will check,
And quell their force.

In science:

Thus our conclusion is: a model of mechanically extended source of radiation in classical electrodynamics with retardation indeed possesses some problems with radiation reaction force.
Can Mechanically Extended Sources of Radiation in Classical Electrodynamics Solve all Problems of Radiating Point-Like Sources?
In this connection we might also mention the work of Noguez and Rom´anVel´azquez, who calculate the force between a sphere and a plate made of dissimilar materials in the non-retarded limit (see also van Kampen and Gerlach ) in terms of multipolar interactions.
The Casimir effect: Recent controversies and progress
That is, it is not only that the intercharge force is instantaneous, not retarded, but also that the Heaviside formula does not even correctly describe a hypothetical retarded intercharge force.

In RCED and QED the force fields and the charge density are specified at the same time, so that the intercharge force is instantaneous, not retarded .
The physics of space and time II: A reassessment of Einstein's 1905 special relativity paper
It has been found that retardation and higher multipole contributions are quite small up to moderate photon energies (below 2% for ω ≤ 50 MeV). A high–precision comparison of CHH– and EIHH–LIT results with the AV18+UIX nuclear force model has been made in .
The Lorentz Integral Transform (LIT) method and its applications to perturbation induced reactions
For simple setups (e.g. two and three sphere systems) we can evaluate Equation (4) in different perturbative regimes e.g. retarded or non-retarded limits using static values for the permittivities (see6 for explicit evaluations and force plots of two and three sphere systems).
Casimir forces between spheres and loop integrals
Encouraged by it, we calculated the self-force using the small-time expansion of the retarded propagator.

So it was no surprise that the retarded dispersion force between molecules, the Casimir-Polder force, could be derived from the Lifshitz force between parallel dielectric surfaces [35,26].

The former is given by the linear differential operator that maps ¯u(¯r (cid:48) ) onto ˆz · σ(¯r (cid:48) ), where σ(¯r (cid:48) ) is the induced stress tensor, and the latter by the retarded Green’s function of the free elastic half-space harmonically forced at its boundary46 .

In the non-retarded regime, corresponding to separations smaller than the relevant transition wavelengths, the force decays as the inverse fourth power of the distance.
