The r, r' integrals can be done using the familiar substitution (10.21), and pulling out the factors which relate the S- to the .M-matrix gives
and using 77** = (1,0) permit us to write the instantaneous .M-matrix in the following way:
Note that this is similar to Eq. (10.22) except for the sign, which is now + because both the fi~ and e~ have negative charge, and the appearance of v spinors, which ■ AW be discussed below.
The second term, due to //rad. becomes
