Conditions for the appearance of gravitational ultrarelativistic spinorbital interaction
Abstract
A qualitative analysis of the energy and momentum integrals for the MathissonPapapetrou equations in a Schwarzschild field is employed to determine the conditions under which all solutions of the exact MathissonPapapetrou equations corresponding to fixed initial coordinate and velocity values differ significantly from the solution of the abbreviated equations normally used for the same initial data. Numerical computer calculations provide additional indication of a difference in the world lines of the exact MathissonPapapetrou equations from solutions of the geodesic equations at ultrarelativistic velocity values. For high energy particles entering into the composition of cosmic rays one can expect appearance of gravitational ultrarelativistic spinorbital interaction upon motion of such particles in the field of a neutron star.
