Abstract [en]

The Dirac equation is a relativistic wave equation and was the first equation to capture spin in relativistic quantum mechanics. Here, the Dirac equation will be derived and solved for a particle in a spherical box potential. Comparisons to the non-relativistic Schrödinger equation as well as to a relativistically corrected Schrödinger equation will be made. Applications of the Dirac equation, such as the Bogoliubov model, are examined and discussed and it is validated that the Dirac equation can provide knowledge about elementary particles.

Abstract [sv]

Dirac-ekvationen är en relativistisk vågekvation och var den första ekvationen att inkludera spinn i relativistisk kvantmekanik. I vår rapport kommer Dirac-ekvationen att härledas och lösas för en partikel i en sfärisk lådpotential. Den kommer sedan att jämföras med den icke-relativistiska Schrödinger-ekvationen samt en relativistiskt korrigerad Schrödinger-ekvation. Några av Dirac-ekvationens användningsområden, såsom för Bogoliubovs modell, kommer att undersökas och diskuteras och det faktum att Diracekvationen kan ge oss information om hur elementära partiklar fungerar valideras.
