Abstract

The Schiff theorem is revisited in this work and the residual P- and T-odd electron-nucleus interaction, after the shielding takes effect, is completely specified. An application is made to the electric dipole moments of hydrogen-like atoms, whose qualitative features and systematics have important implication for realistic paramagnetic atoms.
