Recoil corrections to the atomic decay rate are considered in the order of Zm/M . The expressions are treated exactly without any expansion over Z alpha. The expressions obtained are valid both for muonic atoms (for which they contribute on the level of a few percent in high Z ions) and for electronic atoms. Explicit results for Lyman-alpha transitions for low-Z of the order (Zm/M)(Z alpha)^2 are also presented.

Nuclear recoil effect on the magnetic-dipole decay rates of atomic levels
Abstract.The effect of finite nuclear mass on the magnetic-dipole transition probabilities between fine-structure levels of the same term is investigated. Based on a rigorous QED approach a
Relativistic calculations of one-photon transition probabilities in hydrogen-like ions
The one-photon transition probabilities in hydrogen-like ions are calculated for nuclear charge numbers in the range 1 ≤ Z ≤ 100. The calculations are performed in the framework of the relativistic
Radiative QED corrections to one-photon transition rates in the hydrogen atom at finite temperatures
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
Results of numerically solving an integral equation for a two-fermion system
A two-particle system is described by integral equations whose kernels are dependent on the total energy of the system. Such equations can be reduced to an eigenvalue problem featuring an
