We study the semi-classical approximation of a massive Dirac equation in space-dimension n ≥ 2 with some general nonlinear self-coupling. We prove that there exists a family of ground states of the semi-classical problem, for all h small, and show that the family concentrates around some certain sets determined by the competing potential functions as h approaches 0.
Keywords: Dirac equations, semi-classical states, concentration.
