On the Reflexion and Transmission of Neutrino Waves by a Kerr Black Hole
Abstract
The equations governing the twocomponent neutrino are reduced to the form of a onedimensional wave equation. And it is shown how the absence of superradiance (i.e. a reflexion coefficient in excess of one) for incident neutrino waves and its manifestation for incident electromagnetic and gravitational waves (of suitable frequencies) emerge very naturally from the character of the respective potential barriers that surround the Kerr black hole.
