  • Gair, J R, 2002, An investigation of bound states in the Kerr-Newman potential . This is a description of the solution of the Schrodinger and Klein-Gordon equations for the potential of a massless Kerr-Newman black hole. The work was done as part of an investigation into the dirac equation for this potential (for a description click here). This essay was submitted for a Rayleigh-Knight prize, awarded by the University of Cambridge. This work will be written up as a number of papers, as described above. At present, the essay is available as a postscript file by clicking here.
