Abstract : In the process in which a single photon is produced in the scattering of an electron from a proton, the dominant part of the cross section is due to photon emission from the electrons. However, if the energy of the process approaches or exceeds the threshold for pi meson production, the proton bremsstrahlung becomes significant. A general form factor analysis is derived as a framework for discussing all proton bremsstrahlung processes. Specifically, the proton electromagnetic process and neutral pion exchange contribution are considered in addition to the pion-induced processes. The latter can be treated conveniently, however, only within the framework of a static approximation. Numerical results are presented. (Author)
