## Post-Newtonian equation for the energy levels of a Dirac particle in a static metric

We study first the Hamiltonian operator H corresponding to the Fock-Weyl extension of the Dirac equation to gravitation. When searching for stationary solutions to this equation, in a static metric, we show that just one invariant Hermitian product appears natural. In the case of a space-isotropic metric, H is Hermitian for that product. Then we investigate the asymptotic post-Newtonian approximation of the stationary Schroedinger equation associated with H, for a slow particle in a weak-field static metric. We rewrite the expanded equations as one equation for a two-component spinor field. This equation contains just the nonrelativistic Schroedinger equation in themore »
