¬Spectroscopic Properties of the Relativistic Hydrogen Atom

Mikhail Nikolas Sergeenko


The hydrogen atom as relativistic two-body problem is considered. Interaction of a proton and an electron in the atom is described by the static Lorentz scalar Coulomb potential. Relativistic two-body wave equation is derived. Lagrangian relativistic mechanics is used to derive the two-particle dynamic equation of motion. The proton structure and motion effects are accounted in the calculations. The energy spectrum of the hydrogen atom is calculated and compared with the tabulated NIST data.
