Title: Scattering for massive Dirac fields on the Kerr metric

Abstract

Starting with the Dirac equation outside the event horizon of a nonextreme Kerr black hole, we develop a time-dependent scattering theory for massive Dirac particles. The explicit computation of the modified wave operators at infinity is done by implementing a time-dependent logarithmic phase shift from the free dynamics to offset the long range term in the full Hamiltonian due to the presence of the gravitational force. Analytical expressions for the wave operators are also given.
