Title: Reconstruction of radial Dirac operators

Abstract

We study the inverse spectral problem of reconstructing the potential of radial Dirac operators acting in the unit ball of R{sup 3}. For each one-dimensional partial Dirac operator corresponding to a nonzero angular momentum, we give a complete description of the spectral data (eigenvalues and suitably defined norming constants), prove existence and uniqueness of solutions to the inverse problem, and present the reconstruction algorithm.

  • A systematic construction of the general forms of relativistic scattering operators for spin-1/2 particles is presented. Lorentz-invariant two-body scattering operators for the spin-1/2-spin-1/2 and spin-1/2-spin-0 systems are explicitly represented in a manner which is the relativistic generalization of the Wolfenstein representation of Galilean-invariant scattering operators. The simpler spin-1/2-spin-0 case serves as a prototype for the much more complicated spin-1/2-spin-1/2 case. For each case a complete set of independent Lorentz invariants is obtained directly in terms of the available four-momenta and the Dirac ..gamma.. matrices. The most general forms of the scattering operators are derived in terms of these.
  • The paper analyzes the decay of any zero modes that might exist for a massless Dirac operator H:={alpha}{center_dot}(1/i){nabla}+Q, where Q is 4x4 matrix valued and of order O(|x|{sup -1}) at infinity. The approach is based on inversion with respect to the unit sphere in R{sup 3} and establishing embedding theorems for Dirac-Sobolev spaces of spinors f which are such that f and Hf lie in (L{sup p}(R{sup 3})){sup 4}, 1{<=}p<{infinity}.
  • The spectral properties of Dirac operators with singular potentials that are constructed by means of a cut-off procedure are investigated. The invariance of the essential spectrum is proved, norm resolvent convergence of the cut-off operators is established and spectral gap formulas are proved.
