In the present work we report the investigation of the low frequency
Breit effects for actinides. For this purpose, the finite-difference (numerical)
codes developed earlier for the Dirac-Hartree-Fock calculations with the
Breit interaction (DHFB) taken into account are applied. The contributions of both instantaneous magnetic (Gaunt) and retardation of the Coulomb interaction between electrons as well as contributions from/between
different shells are studied. The calculation of the Breit corrections to the valence and core properties for the uranium, plutonium and other atoms is performed. The quality of different relativistic effective core potentials
(RECPs) is studied with respect to the DHFB calculations.
