Teukolsky master equation: de rham wave equation for gravitational and electromagnetic fields in vacuum.

A new version of the Teukolsky master equation, describing any massless field of spin s = 1/2, 1, 3/2 or 2 in a Kerr black hole, is presented here in the form of a wave equation containing additional curvature terms. These results suggest a relation between curvature perturbation theory in general r...
