Title: Separability of center of mass and relative motion of hydrogen in very strong magnetic fields

Abstract

While hydrogen does not strictly separate into center of mass (CMS) and relative motion in a magnetic field, a judicious gauge choice does lead to a simple Hamiltonian whose form in a state of zero translational motion of the center of mass is that of a charged particle in a magnetic field plus a coulomb potential.
