A particle moving with variable acceleration in the flat space-time affects the self-force due to outgoing radiation. The gravitational fields bring an additional contribution to self-force due to scattering waves on the curved backgrounds. This force is not zero even for a particle at rest. A review of the self-interaction in the gravitational field is presented. We consider the self-force for the particle connected with the vector and scalar fields. Different backgrounds are considered—black holes, stars, topological defects, and wormholes.
