Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASIC, volume 315)


In this paper we shortly discuss the theory of Fourier transform on the non-Euclidean space and show how to generalize it to enable us to solve the Dirac equations on the Friedmann - Robertson - Walker space-times. We also indicate possible application of the theory to the description of strong interactions.
