Abstract

The second-order symmetry operators that commute with the Dirac operator with external vector, scalar and pseudo-scalar potentials are computed on a general two-dimensional spin manifold. It is shown that the operator is defined in terms of Killing vectors, valence two Killing tensors and scalar fields defined on the background manifold. The commuting operator that arises from a non-trivial Killing tensor is determined with respect to the associated system of Liouville coordinates and compared to the second-order operator that obtained from the unique separation scheme associated with such operators. It is shown by the study of several examples that the operators arising from these two approaches coincide
