Quantum Physics


The Dirac Equation in Quaternionic Format

Authors: J.A.J. van Leunen

In its original form the Dirac equation for the free electron and the free positron is formulated by using complex number based spinors and matrices. That equation can be split into two equations, one for the electron and one for the positron. These equations appear to apply different parameter spaces. The equation for the electron and the equation for the positron differ in the symmetry flavor of their parameter spaces. This results in special considerations for the corresponding quaternionic second order partial differential equation.
