Relativistic Mechanics Theory for Electrons that Exhibits Spin, Zitterbewegung, Superposition and Produces Dirac's Wave Equation
A neo-classical relativistic mechanics model is presented where the spin of an electron is a natural part of its world space-time path as a point particle. The fourth-order equation of motion
Relativistic Spinning Particle without Grassmann Variables and the Dirac Equation
We present the relativistic particle model without Grassmann variables which, being canonically quantized, leads to the Dirac equation. Classical dynamics of the model is in correspondence with the
Zitterbewegung in External Magnetic Field: Classic versus Quantum Approach
We investigate variations of the Zitterbewegung frequency of electron due to an external static and uniform magnetic field employing the expectation value quantum approach, and compare our results


Spin in Classical and Quantum Theory
The classical equations of motion of a charged pointparticle with intrinsic spin under the influence of an external electromagnetic field are restated and compared with the Heisenberg equations of
Spin and uncertainty in the interpretation of quantum mechanics
A rigorous derivation of the Schrodinger theory from the Pauli (or Dirac) theory implies that the Schrodinger equation describes an electron in an eigenstate of spin. Furthermore, the ground‐state
Field theory of the electron spin and Zitterbewegung
In previous papers, we have investigated the classical theory of Barut and Zanghi (BZ) for the electron spin [which interpreted the Zitterbewegung (zbw) motion as an internal motion along helical
Hydrodynamical Reformulation and Quantum Limit of The Barut–Zanghi Theory
One of the most satisfactory pictures for spinning particles is the Barut-Zanghi (BZ) classical theory for the relativistic extended-like electron, that relates spin to zitterbewegung (zbw). The BZ
A Velocity Field and Operator for Spinning Particles in (Nonrelativistic) Quantum Mechanics
Starting from the formal expressions of the hydrodynamical (or “local”) quantities employed in the applications of Clifford algebras to quantum mechanics, we introduce—in terms of the ordinary
Spinning Electrons and the Structure of Spectra
So far as we know, the idea of a quantised spinning of the electron was put forward for the first time by A. K. Compton (Journ. Frankl. Inst., Aug. 1921, p. 145), who pointed out the possible bearing
Consistency in the formulation of the Dirac, Pauli, and Schrödinger theories
Properties of observables in the Pauli and Schrodinger theories and first order relativistic approximations to them are derived from the Dirac theory. They are found to be inconsistent with customary
Magnetic Moment Operator of the Relativistic Electron
We consider for the Dirac electron the operator m=(12)ex×x conversion in the Heisenberg representation, and prove, by separating the center-of-mass coordinate xA and the relative coordinate of the
The Dirac equation is expressed entirely in terms of geometrical quantities by providing a geometrical interpretation for the (−1)½ which appears explicitly in the Dirac equation. In the modification
