Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Using the standard formalism of Lorentz transformation of the special theory of relativity, we derive the exact expression of the Thomas precession rate for an electron in a classical circular orbit around the nucleus of a hydrogen-like atom.
