The formulation for the evaluation of the matrix elements over the relativisitic mass-variation and Darwin operators is presented. Calculations of these corrections have been carried out, using available analytical Hartree-Fock functions, for the positive ions, neutral systems, and negative ions for all the atoms from He to Kr.
