Abstract

The Dirac Hamiltonian is calculated in the Schwarzschild space and compared to the analogous one in a uniformly accelerating Minkowski frame yielding a test of the equivalence principle. Comparing these Hamiltonians, we see that the flat-space energy-mass terms and their redshifted forms are the same in the two cases, but the coefficient of the spin-orbit coupling term is different and an additional term appears in the gravitational case.
