Abstract

The second-order electron self-energy is evaluated to all orders in the interaction with the Coulomb field of the nucleus for the ground state of hydrogen-like uranium ions. This completes the nonperturbative calculation of radiative corrections of order α2. The major theoretical uncertainty is eliminated which provides predictions of the ground-state energy with a relative accuracy of about 10-6 for the uranium system. This allows for high-precision tests of QED in the strong field of the nucleus that are expected to be available experimentally in the near future.
