Summary

In this book, quantum mechanics is developed from the outset on a relativistic basis, using the superposition principle, Lorentz invariance, and gauge invariance. Nonrelativistic quantum mechanics appears as a special case, classical relativistic mechanics as another. These special cases are important for giving plausible names to operators, for example "orbital angular momentum, " "spin" or "magnetic moment." A subject that is treated for the first time in this book is the theory of binaries in terms of differential equations, which allow the calculation of radiative corrections via the vector potential operator.
