Just after the Dirac equation was established, a number of physicists tried to comment on and solve the spectral problem for the Dirac Hamiltonian with the Coulomb field of arbitrarily large charge $Z$, especially with $Z$ that is more than the critical value $Z_{\mathrm{c}}=\alpha^{-1}\simeq137,04$, making sometimes contradictory conclusions and presenting doubtful solutions. It seems that there is no consesus on this problem up until now and especially on the way of using corresponding…

Quantization of charged fields in the presence of critical potential steps

QFT approaches elaborated for treating quantum effects in time-dependent external electric fields are not directly applicable to time-independent nonuniform electric fields that are given by a step

Quantum Mechanics of One- and Two-Electron Atoms

One of the simplest, and most completely treated, fields of application of quantum mechanics is the theory of atoms with one or two electrons. For hydrogen and the analcgous ions He+, Li++, etc., the

Quantum electrodynamics of strong fields

Up to now, our considerations in this book have mainly treated the behaviour of electrons (or positrons) under the influence of weak perturbations. In this chapter we want to deal with phenomena that
