The purpose of this quantity is twofold. First, it's an try to simplify and make clear the relativistic conception of the hydrogen-like atoms. For this function we've used the mathematical formalism, brought within the Dirac concept of the electron via David Hestenes, according to using the genuine Cli?ord algebra Cl(M) linked to the Minkwoski space–time M, that's, the euclidean four R house of signature (1,3). This algebra will be regarded as the extension to this house of the idea of the Hamilton quaternions (which occupies an importantplaceintheresolutionoftheDiracequationforthecentralpotential problem). The readability comes from the genuine shape given through D. Hestenes to the electron wavefunctionthatreplaces,inastrictequivalence,theDiracspinor.Thisform is at once inscribed within the body of the geometry of the Minkwoski house during which the experiments are inevitably put. The simplicity derives from the uni?cation of the language used to explain the mathematical gadgets of the speculation and the information of the experiments. the math about the de?nition and using the algebra Cl(M) aren't very complex. someone who understands what a vector house is should be capable of comprehend the geometrical implications of this algebra. The lecture might be probably extra di?cult for the readers already conversant in the advanced formalism of the matrices and spinors, to the level that the recent language will look di?erent from the one who they've got used. however the correspondence among the 2 formalisms is ensured within the textual content at each one degree of the idea.
