- The inductive contribution to the retarded interatomic potential energy of two atoms in degenerate ground states is calculated up to all multipole orders on the basis of quantum electrodynamics. The result, which is found to have nonretarded character, is written in such a way as to show the induction effects brought about in each of the atoms by the electrostatic and magnetostatic fields of the other.
