How to make relativistic correction to perturbation?

  1. Aug 9, 2012 #1
    I want to know about relativistic correction to perturbation.

    I searched but failed to find any teaching on this topic. Is it true that we just need to replace the non-relativistic Hamiltonian perturbation terms with the relativistic ones while leaving the perturbation formulae unchanged?

    Thank for all reply and comments.
