Within the framework of QED theory at finite temperature the thermal radiative corrections to spontaneous one-photon transition rates in hydrogen atom are investigated. The radiative one-loop self-energy corrections are described in the thermal case. Closed analytical expressions are derived and their numerical calculations for the spontaneous decay rate of the $ 2p $ state are carried out. Dominance of thermal radiative corrections to spontaneous Ly$_{\alpha} $ decay rate over ordinary induced…
