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

My Tattoo of the Dirac Equation Describes the Very Start of the Beginnings of Scientific Creations in its Rawest of Forms, from a Spinning Electron around the Proton of an Atom, to one of Thee Most Intense and Unstoppable Forces in the Whole Universe; a Quasar (a Spinning Super Massive Black Hole). Elegant and Horrendously Complex, is an Absolute Miracle of Compression. Very few Symbols between them Bring Together -Quantum Theory and Relativity- for the Spinning Electron.

One equation brings together the two cornerstones of modern physics: quantum mechanics and relativity

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.

Feynman diagram

In this Feynman diagram, an electron and a positron annihilate, producing a photon (represented by the blue sine wave) that becomes a quark–antiquark pair, after which the antiquark radiates a gluon (represented by the green helix).
