Abstract

If a central vector potential V(r,a) in the Dirac equation is monotonic in a parameter a, then a discrete eigenvalue E(a) is monotonic in a. For such a special class of comparisons, this generalizes an earlier comparison theorem that was restricted to node free states. Moreover, the present theorem applies to every discrete eigenvalue.
