Electromagnetic Interaction of Particles with Spin

  • R. H. GoodJr.


The problem considered here is that of making a relativistic theory for a particle or antiparticle, of definite nonzero mass m and spin s = 0, ½, 1,…, in an external electromagnetic field. The effects of anomalous electric and magnetic moments are to be considered also; for spin s these have to be included up to 22s pole type. This corresponds to the physical situation of an elementary particle or nucleus falling through external fields without any dissociation or internal excitation taking place.
