Abstract: We study the selfadjoint extensions of the Dirac operator , where the electrical potential contains a Coulomb singularity of arbitrary charge and the magnetic potential is allowed to be unbounded at infinity. We show that if the Coulomb singularity has the form where has a limit at 0, then, for any selfadjoint extension of the Dirac operator, removing the singularity results in a HilbertSchmidt perturbation of its resolvent.
