{{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||$N=Context |date=__DATE__ |$B= {{#invoke:Message box|ambox}} }} The Axilrod–Teller potential is a three-body potential that results from a third-order perturbation correction to the attractive London dispersion interactions (instantaneous induced dipole-induced dipole)

where is the distance between atoms and , and is the angle between the vectors and . The coefficient is positive and of the order , where is the ionization energy and is the mean atomic polarizability; the exact value of depends on the magnitudes of the dipole matrix elements and on the energies of the orbitals.
