Mass term variations in the Dirac hydrogen atom
- 26 Downloads
The extended quaternion algebra allowstwo forms for the Dirac equation mass term. We show that the definition of angular momentum in the relativistic hydrogen atom suggests that either is physically allowed, but not a combination of both. A combination of both mass termscould still give the usual mass term in the nonrelativistic limit as is shown.
