Effect of the proton mass on the spectrum of the hydrogen atom in a strong magnetic field
Contrary to a recent claim, we point out that, in the problem of a hydrogen atom in a strong magnetic field, the centre-of-mass motion and the relative motion of the particles can be separated, and that the effect of the finite proton mass on the spectrum is negligible. © 1979.
