Systems of charged particles (such as atomic nuclei and electrons) can be described by nonrelativistic quantum mechanics with the Coloumb interaction potential. A fully relativistic description is given by quantum electrodynamics which is much more complex.
Is it possible to expand various quantities in QED as power series in 1/c i.e. around the nonrelativistic approximation? Examples of relevant quantities are:
