Preferred Abstract (Original): 
Time-odd mean fields (nuclear magnetism) are investigated in the framework of covariant density functional theory (CDFT). It is shown that they always provide additional binding to the binding energies of odd-mass nuclei. As a result, time-odd mean fields affect odd-even mass differences. They also have a profound effect on the properties of odd-proton nuclei in the vicinity of proton-drip line. Their presence can modify the half-lives of proton-emitters and considerably affect the possibilities of their experimental observation.
