Dirac Operators and Shell Interactions: A Survey
MetadataShow full item record
In this survey we gather recent results on Dirac operators coupled with δ-shell interactions. We start by discussing recent advances regarding the question of self-adjointness for these operators. Afterwards we switch to an approximation question: can these operators be recovered as limits of Dirac operators coupled with squeezing potentials? We also discuss spectral features of these models. Namely, we recall the main spectral consequences of a resolvent formula and conclude the survey by commenting a result of asymptotic nature for the eigenvalues in the gap of a Dirac operator coupled with a Lorentz-scalar interaction.
