Abstract: The effects of relativity and the concept of core-valence separation have been examined with respect to polarizabilities for elements of groups. IA and IB. The coupled Hartree-Fock method for atomic polarizabilities has been incorporated into an ab initio atomic self-consistent field program. Relativistic effects have been studied via ab initio calculations employing relativistic (REP) and nonrelativistic effective core potentials (NEP). The effects of re-definition of core and valence spaces have been studied by deriving REP's for heavy elements for a set of cases whereby fewer and fewer electrons are ``frozen'' into the core. In addition, core-valence correlation effects have been examined by calculating atomic polarizabilities via a finite-field formalism and configuration interaction calculations. The magnitudes of relativistic and core-valence correlation effects and the impact of definition of core-valence space are compared. The impact of this work on molecular studies employing effective potentials is discussed.
