We give a new theoretical basis for examination of the presence of the Kerr black hole (KBH) or the Kerr naked singularity (KNS) in the central engine of different astrophysical objects around which astrophysical jets are typically formed: X-ray binary systems, gamma ray bursts (GRBs), active galactic nuclei (AGN), etc.Our method is based on the study of the exact solutions of the Teukolsky master equation for electromagnetic perturbations of the Kerr metric. By imposing original boundary…

The Teukolsky master equation is the basic tool for the study of perturbations of the Kerr metric in linear approximation. It admits separation of variables, thus yielding the Teukolsky radial

Dirac Equation on the Kerr–Newman Spacetime and Heun Functions

By employing a pseudoorthonormal coordinate-free approach, the Dirac equation for particles in the Kerr–Newman spacetime is separated into its radial and angular parts. In the massless case to which

Solving systems of transcendental equations involving the Heun functions

A new algorithm for solving a system of two nonlinear transcendental equations with two complex variables based on the Muller algorithm is proposed, particularly useful in systems featuring the Heun functions and for them, the new algorithm gives distinctly better results than Newton's and Broyden's methods.
