@article{Cetto2013AtomicRC, title={Atomic radiative corrections without QED: role of the zero-point field}, author={Ana Mar{\'i}a Cetto and Luis de la Pe{\~n}a and Andrea Vald'es-Hern'andez}, journal={Revista Mexicana De Fisica}, year={2013}, volume={59}, pages={433-443} }

odinger equation, is obtained as a result of reducing the original phase-space description of the entire particle- ZPF system to the configuration space of the particle in the time-asymptotic limit, in which an energy balance is reached between radiation reaction and the ZPF and higher-order effects of the radiative terms can be neglected. This paper is concerned with the main effects on the atom of the previously neglected radiative terms, calculated to lowest order in fi = e 2 =~c. After…
