In a paper published in 1928 P.A.M. Dirac [8] established a relativistic wave equation for the electron which allows the introduction of the intrinsic magnetic moment of this particle. This equation is invariant under proper Lorentz transformations and the wave function is a spinor. Starting from this article we recover the formation of this equation.
