We derive an approximate expression for a "radiative potential" which can be used to calculate QED strong Coulomb field radiative corrections to energies and electric dipole (E1) transition amplitudes in many-electron atoms with an accuracy of a few percent. The expectation value of the radiative potential gives radiative corrections to the energie...

High-precision measurements of violations of fundamental symmetries in atoms are a very effective means of testing the standard model of elementary particles and searching for new physics beyond it. Such studies complement measurements at high energies. We review the recent progress in atomic parity nonconservation and atomic electric dipole moment...

We report a fourfold improvement in the determination of nuclear magnetic moments for neutron-deficient isotopes of francium-207--213, reducing the uncertainties from 2% for most isotopes to 0.5%. These are found by comparing our high-precision calculations of hyperfine structure constants for the ground states with experimental values. In particul...

We report on our calculations of differential hyperfine anomalies in the nuclear single-particle model for a number of atoms and ions of interest for precision atomic tests of the standard model. It is shown that a comparison with available experimental data allows one to discriminate between different nuclear magnetization models. The nuclear sing...

The finite distribution of the nuclear magnetic moment across the nucleus gives a contribution to the hyperfine structure known as the Bohr-Weisskopf (BW) effect. We have obtained an empirical value of -0.24(18)% for this effect in the ground and excited s states of atomic Cs-133. This value is found from historical muonic-atom measurements in comb...

In this paper we study the influence of electron screening on the Bohr-Weisskopf (BW) effect in many-electron atoms. The BW effect gives the finite-nucleus magnetization contribution to the hyperfine structure. Relativistic atomic many-body calculations are performed for s and p_1/2 states of several systems of interest for studies of atomic parity...

We study the screening of a homogeneous oscillating external electric field E0 in noble-gas atoms using atomic many-body calculations. At zero frequency of the oscillations (ω=0) the screened field E(r) vanishes at the nucleus, E(0)=0. However, the profile of the field E(r) is complicated, with the magnitude of the field exceeding the external fiel...

Calculations of the magnetic hyperfine structure rely on the input of nuclear properties -- nuclear magnetic moments and nuclear magnetization distributions -- as well as quantum electrodynamic (QED) radiative corrections for high-accuracy evaluation in heavy atoms. The uncertainties associated with assumed values of these properties limit the accu...

We calculate vacuum polarization corrections to the binding energies in neutral alkali atoms Na through to the superheavy element E119. We employ the relativistic Hartree-Fock method to demonstrate the importance of relaxation of the electronic core and the correlation potential method to study the effects of second and higher orders of perturbatio...

We present a detailed study of the Flambaum-Ginges radiative potential method which enables the accurate inclusion of quantum electrodynamics (QED) radiative corrections in a simple manner in atoms, ions, and molecules over the range 10<=Z<=120, where Z is the nuclear charge. Calculations are performed for binding energy shifts to the lowest valenc...

We consider the largest (Uehling) contribution to the one-loop vacuum polarization correction to the binding energies in neutral alkali atoms, from Na through to the superheavy element E119. We use the relativistic Hartree-Fock method to demonstrate the importance of core relaxation effects. These effects are sizeable everywhere, though particularl...

We have considered a mechanism for inducing a time-reversal violating electric dipole moment (EDM) in atoms through the interaction of a nuclear EDM (d_N) with the hyperfine interaction, the "magnetic moment effect". We have derived the operator for this interaction and presented analytical formulas for the matrix elements between atomic states. In...

We have calculated the atomic electric dipole moments (EDMs) d of ^3He and ^{171}Yb induced by their respective nuclear Schiff moments S. Our results are d(He)= 8.3x10^{-5} and d(Yb)= -1.9 in units 10^{-17}S/(e{fm}^3)e cm. By considering the nuclear Schiff moments induced by the parity and time-reversal violating nucleon-nucleon interaction we find...

With the creation of ultracold atoms and molecules, a new type of chemistry - "resonance" chemistry - emerges: chemical reactions can occur when the energy of colliding atoms and molecules matches a bound state of the combined molecule (Feshbach resonance). This chemistry is rather similar to reactions that take place in nuclei at low energies. In...

We use the configuration interaction method and many-body perturbation theory to perform accurate calculations of energy levels, transition amplitudes, and lifetimes of low-lying states of barium and radium. Calculations for radium are needed for the planning of measurements of parity and time invariance violating effects which are strongly enhance...

Parity and time invariance violating nuclear forces produce P,T-odd nuclear moments. In turn, these moments can induce electric dipole moments (EDM) in atoms. EDM of diamagnetic atoms is induced by nuclear Schiff moment. We explain the origin of Schiff moment, describe its electric field, mechanisms of collective enhancement (up to 1000 times) in d...

We calculate the 6s-7s parity nonconserving (PNC) E1 transition amplitude E-PNC in cesium. We use an improved all-order technique in the calculation of the correlations and include all significant contributions to E-PNC. Our final value E-PNC = 0.904(1+/-0.5%) x 10(-11)iea(B)(-Q(W)/N) has half the uncertainty claimed in old calculations used for th...

Collisions and chemical reactions of molecules in Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) are extremely sensitive to weak fields. This sensitivity arises due to the high density of compound resonances and a macroscopic number of molecules with kinetic energy E=0 (perfect energy resolution). We suggest that chemical reactions in molecular BECs could be use...

We propose a nuclear mechanism which can induce an atomic electric dipole moment (EDM). Parity and time reversal violating (P,T-odd) nuclear forces generate a mixed P,T-odd nuclear polarizability beta_{ik} (defined by an energy shift U = -beta_{ik} E_{i}H_{k}, E is electric field and H magnetic field). The interaction of atomic electrons with beta_...
