    • Abstract


      Charged particle orbits off the equatorial plane of a Kerr black hole in an external electromagnetic field is studied, both for dipole as well as uniform magnetic field. Particles are found to get trapped by the magnetic field if the initial value of the parallel velocity is small. Bending of the field lines in the vicinity of the hole and the consequent trapping of the particles in an otherwise uniform magnetic field indicates the significance of general relativistic effects in such cases.
