Abstract

In this review article, we survey some of our results pertaining to the search for the electric dipole moment of the electron (eEDM), using heavy polar molecules. In particular, we focus on the relativistic coupled cluster method (RCCM) and its applications to eEDM searches in YbF, HgX (X = F, Cl, Br, and I), BaF, HgA (A = Li, Na, and K), and YbOH. Our results are presented in a systematic manner, by first introducing the eEDM and its measurement using molecules, the importance of relativistic many-body theory, and finally our results, followed by future prospects.
