# Self-Adjoint Extensions of the Pauli Equation in the Presence of a Magnetic Monopole

@article{Karat1997SelfAdjointEO, title={Self-Adjoint Extensions of the Pauli Equation in the Presence of a Magnetic Monopole}, author={Edwin Richard Karat and Michael B. Schulz}, journal={Annals of Physics}, year={1997}, volume={254}, pages={11-24} }

Abstract We discuss the Hamiltonian for a nonrelativistic electron with spin in the presence of an abelian magnetic monopole and note that it is not self-adjoint in the lowest two angular momentum modes. We then use von Neumann's theory of self-adjoint extensions to construct a self-adjoint operator with the same functional form. In general, this operator will have eigenstates in which the lowest two angular momentum modes mix, thereby removing conservation of angular momentum. However…

In solving the eigenvalue wave equation, we relax the usual diagonal constraint on its matrix representation by allowing it to be tridiagonal. This results in a larger representation space that…
