Abstract

Two kinds of interaction in two extreme opposite regimes of separation were evaluated. As such, a particularly simple result for the fully retarded interaction involving clusters was described. The interaction between two clusters was reduced by a screening function, derived from the product of individual cluster screening functions f(N), that depend on the electronic properties of the cluster.
