When the SN progenitor is a red supergiant whose radius is larger than several hundred [R.sub.[dot encircle], the SBO is nonrelativistic (Newtonian) [459-461] and the emission is dominated by optical and UV radiation, which is detectable with space telescopes [465-467].
The effective mass and energy-momentum relation have been studied mainly in nonrelativistic electrodynamics.
The physical cases s = 2, 1 correspond, respectively, to the nonrelativistic IFG with [C.sub.2] = [h.sup.2]/2m and to the ultrarelativistic IFG for which [C.sub.1] = ch, c being the speed of light.
For [M.sup.2+] ([M.sup.2+] = [Fe.sup.2+], [Ni.sup.2+], [Cu.sup.2+], and [Zn.sup.2+]), the authors used the nonrelativistic effective core potential (ECP) LanL2DZ [22] for metal atom in combination with 6-31+G(d,p) for C, N, O, and H atoms.

It should be noted, however, that intersystem crossing is a process formally forbidden in nonrelativistic quantum theory, and, so, inferring singlet-triplet transition probabilities from energy gaps is not sufficiently accurate [40, 54].
The most famous example is the nonrelativistic Schrodinger equation for a single particle moving in a potential:
