In the publication of this article [1], contained the following errors. In this Correction, the affected parts of the article are shown. The list of references is available in the original article. We omit pointing out obvious errata with respect to unnecessary periods and wrong symbols.

*In Eq.(2) \( \left\{\ \frac{m_e}{{\left(1-\frac{{\boldsymbol{\upsilon}}_0^2\ }{c^2}\right)}^{\frac{1}{2}}}+{\int}_{t_0}^t\frac{-q\mathbf{E}(t)\cdot \boldsymbol{\upsilon}\ \left(\boldsymbol{t},{\boldsymbol{t}}_{\mathbf{0}}\right)\ }{c^2} dt\right\}\frac{\partial \boldsymbol{\upsilon}\ \left(\boldsymbol{t},{\boldsymbol{t}}_{\mathbf{0}}\right)}{\partial t}+\boldsymbol{\upsilon}\ \left(\boldsymbol{t},{\boldsymbol{t}}_{\mathbf{0}}\right)\ \left(\frac{-q\mathbf{E}(t)\cdot \boldsymbol{\upsilon}\ \left(\boldsymbol{t},{\boldsymbol{t}}_{\mathbf{0}}\right)\ }{c^2}\right)=-q\mathbf{E}(t)- q\upsilon \left(\boldsymbol{t},{\boldsymbol{t}}_{\mathbf{0}}\right)\times \mathbf{B} \)

* In Eq.(6) \( \frac{m_e}{\sqrt{1-\frac{{\boldsymbol{\upsilon}}_0^2\ }{c^2}}}\equiv m,\kern0.5em \frac{qB}{m_e}\sqrt{1-\left(\frac{\upsilon_0^2}{c^2}\right)}=\frac{qB}{m}\equiv {\omega}_c,\left({c}^{{\prime\prime} }={c}^2\right) \)

\( \widehat{z}\left({\upsilon}_x^{\hbox{'}}B\right) \)

* In Eq.(15) \( \frac{qE}{m}\ \frac{-{\omega}_c}{\omega_c^2-{\omega}^2} \)

* In Eq.(17) \( -\frac{1}{4}\frac{qE}{m{\omega}_c}\frac{z_0^2}{c^{{\prime\prime} }}\left({\omega}_c^2{t}^2+3{S}^2\right)C \)

* In Eq.(21) \( \frac{-{\omega}_c}{\omega_c^2-{\omega}^2}\left(\frac{-1}{4}\right) \)

\( \frac{\mathit{\sin}\left(2{\omega}_c-\omega \right)t}{2{\omega}_c-\omega }-\frac{2 sin\omega t}{\omega } \)

* In Fig.9; n=1670
