**Book Description **Narosa Publishing House, 2011. Softcover. Book Condition: New. 5th or later edition. Relativistic Quantum Mechanics begins with the Klein-Gordon equation describing its features and motivating the need for a correct relativistic equation for the electron. It then introduces the Dirac equation by linearizing the second order relativistic equation which reveals the spin, spin magnetic moment and the spin-orbit coupling of the electron. After demonstrating the relativistic covariance of the Dirac equation, the discrete transformations of the Dirac spinor, are explained. The Dirac equation for a free electron and an electron in hydrogen atom are solved ? these solutions are used to interpret the negative energy states in the ?hole theory? of Dirac. As applications of the Dirac equation, the scattering of electrons by a Coulomb potential is given in detail and extended to electron-proton scattering. As a further application, the Dirac equation with zero mass is considered to describe the neutrino. The chapter on neutrinos contains a brief description of ?neutrino oscillations? The book ends with giving an elementary treatment of spin manifolds with illustrative examples. Key Features ? Self-contained and clear presentation ? Exercises along with the text ? Problems at the end of most of the chapters Table of Contents Preface / Klein-Gordon Equation / Dirac Equation / Relativistic Covariance of the Dirac Equation / Solutions to the Dirac Equation / Helicity, Velocity Operators in Dirac?s Theory / Hole Theory of Dirac / Scattering in Dirac Theory / The Neutrino / Some Formal Aspects of Dirac Theory / Suggested Reading / Index. Printed Pages: 220. Bookseller Inventory # 68191
