Title

Some Recent Advances in Bound-State Quantum Electrodynamics

Abstract

We discuss recent progress in various problems related to bound-state quantum electrodynamics: the bound-electron g factor, two-loop self-energy corrections, and the laser-dressed Lamb shift. The progress relies on various advances in the bound-state formalism, including ideas inspired by effective field theories such as nonrelativistic quantum electrodynamics. Radiative corrections in dynamical processes represent a promising field for further investigations.
