We show the existence and uniqueness of a DiPerna–Lions flow for relativistic particles subject to a Lorentz force in an electromagnetic field. The electric and magnetic fields solve the linear Maxwell system in the vacuum but for singular initial conditions which are only in the physical energy space. As the corresponding force field is only in L2, we have to perform a careful analysis of the cancellations over a trajectory.
