Klein's paradox and the relativistic $\delta$-shell interaction in $\mathbb{R}^3$

Albert Mas and Fabio Pizzichillo

Vol. 11 (2018), No. 3, 705–744
Abstract

Under certain hypotheses of smallness on the regular potential V, we prove that the Dirac operator in 3 , coupled with a suitable rescaling of V , converges in the strong resolvent sense to the Hamiltonian coupled with a δ-shell potential supported on Σ, a bounded C2 surface. Nevertheless, the coupling constant depends nonlinearly on the potential V; Klein’s paradox comes into play.
