The equation was discovered in the late 1920s by physicist Paul Dirac. It remains highly influential. It brought together two of the most important ideas in science: quantum mechanics, which describes the behaviour of tiny objects; and Einstein's special theory of relativity, which describes the behaviour of fast-moving objects. As a result, Dirac's equation describes how particles like electrons behave when they travel close to the speed of light.

The most beautiful equation is… The Dirac equation

Spin in Quantum Mechanics, with Relativity, and the Dirac Equation

The Dirac Equation describes fields corresponding to elementary spin-½ particles (such as the electron) as a vector of four complex numbers (a bispinor), in contrast to the Schrödinger equation which described a field of only one complex value.
