Asymptotics of the ground state energy for relativistic heavy atoms and molecules

We discuss sharp asymptotics of the ground state energy for the heavy atoms and molecules in the relativistic settings, without magnetic field or with the self-generated magnetic field, and, in particular, relativistic Scott correction term and also Dirac, Schwinger and relativistic correction terms. In particular, we conclude that the Thomas-Fermi density approximates the actual density of the ground state, which opens the way to estimate the excessive negative and positive charges and the ionization energy.
