Effect of the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron on spontaneous pair production in a strong magnetic field
Taking into account the anomalous magnetic moment of the electron by adding the socalled Pauli anomalous interaction term to the usual Dirac Hamiltonian for an electron in a constant magnetic field H, we conclude that spontaneous pair creation may occur for values of H of the order of m2c4e3, a "critical field" beyond which classical electro-dynamics breaks down. © 1968 The American Physical Society.
