The quasiclassical Green's function for the Dirac equation for an arbitrary localized potential is consistently derived using the Fock—Schwinger proper time method. The method essentially consists of exponentially parametrizing the propagator and disentangling the operator expressions. It allows calculating both the main quasiclassical contribution to and the first quasiclassical correction for the Green's function.
