**An Introduction to Relativistic Quantum Mechanics**

by M. De Sanctis

**Publisher**: arXiv 2007**Number of pages**: 53

**Description**:

By using the general concepts of special relativity and the requirements of quantum mechanics, Dirac equation is derived and studied. Only elementary knowledge of spin and rotations in quantum mechanics and standard handlings of linear algebra are employed for the development of the present work.
