Abstract

A method is proposed for studying the low-frequency solutions of Teukolsky's equation, describing the behavior of massless fields in the vicinity of a Kerr black hole. Approximate basis solutions and an integral equation for exact solutions are constructed. The analytic properties of the exact solutions and the asymptotic behavior of the leading nonanalytic parts are investigated and the approximate solutions are estimated.
