P.A.M. Dirac, Quantum Theory of Electron

P. A. M. Dirac

Dirac has been one of the master of Quantum Theory. The equation which bear his name is the starting point for every theory of quantum matter. In 1928, after the basis of Quantum Mechanics were well established, he wrote a fascinating paper
on the theory of electrons described by a relatively simple spinorial equation.
It explained much of the strange spectroscopic behavior of the matter then known.
It was a profound success in the physics of every time.
Here you can find the original scanned paper, and my personal italian translation.
