The Dirac Equation and the Dirac Field
In Chap. 3 we discussed the theory of neutral mesons. Two elementary particles that frequently occur in Nature, the electron and the proton, are however particles which possess intrinsic angular momentum: spin = 1/2. Since a scalar field offers no opportunity for describing spin we must seek another description for these particles
