Coulomb's law

Etymology: Charles A. de Coulomb
(in physics) a law stating that the force of attraction or repulsion between two electrically charged bodies is directly proportional to the strength of the electrical charges and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

Movre and Pichler (11) showed that if one constructs a Hamiltonian based on both electrostatic interactions and the relativistic spin-orbit interaction that results from the P atom, then the resulting Hamiltonian mixes electronic states labeled by S[LAMBDA][SIGMA][sigma] (where [SIGMA] is the body-fixed projection of S) with states labeled by S'[LAMBDA]'[SIGMA]'[sigma]' such that [OMEGA] = [LAMBDA] + [SIGMA] = [LAMBDA]' + [SIGMA]' is conserved and [sigma] = [sigma]'.
