Lamb Shift in Nonrelativistic Quantum Electrodynamics.
Grotch, Howard
American Journal of Physics, v49 n1 p48-51 Jan 1981
The bound electron self-energy or Lamb shift is calculated in nonrelativistic quantum electrodynamics. Retardation is retained and also an interaction previously dropped in other nonrelativistic approaches is kept. Results are finite without introducing a cutoff and lead to a Lamb shift in hydrogen of 1030.9 MHz. (Author/JN)
