On the spectral theory of singular Dirac type Hamiltonians. (English) Zbl 0993.35070

Summary: We introduce a class of matrix valued pseudo-differential operators that admit scalar locally conjugate operators (in the sense of E. Mourre) and give a general method for the study of singular perturbations of such operators. In particular, we develop the spectral and scattering theory for a class of Hamiltonians which contains the Dirac operators with arbitrary Coulomb singularities.
