dc.description.abstract We consider possible mixing of electromagnetic and gravitational shock waves, in the Planckian energy scattering of point particles in Minkowski space, By boosting a Reissner-Nordstriim black hole solution to the velocity of light, it is shown that no mixing of shock waves takes place for arbitrary finite charge carried by the black hole. However, a similar boosting procedure for a charged black hole solution in dilaton gravity yields some mixing: the wave function of even a neutral test particle, acquires a small additional phase factor depending on the dilalonic black hole charge. Possible implications for poles in the amplitudes for the dilaton gravity case are discussed en_US
