Abstract

The complex vectorial formalism of Debever is used to obtain a new conservation equation for electrovac perturbations of charged rotating black holes.It is shown how this conservation law and the complex vectorial form of Maxwell's equations may be used to give compact derivations of wave equations for such perturbations.
