Induced Compton scattering by independent relativistic particles in a radiation field is considered from both quantum mechanical and classical viewpoints. Quantum mechanically, the particle recoil causes an imperfect cancellation of the induced scattering rates between pairs of photon states. This results in a net energy transfer from the radiation field to the particle. Classically, the electrodynamical effects are manifestations of non-linear coupling between different wave amplitudes in the equation of motion. The results from these two approaches are related and shown to be equivalent.
