    • Abstract

       

      The paper deals with the reduction of the generalised Dirac equation for a system containing N electrons to its 2N large components. The wave equation for many electron systems has been derived in its Schrödinger-Pauli form, and this includes higher order relativistic effects such as the mass change of the particles with their velocities, the spin-orbit, the orbit-orbit and the spin-spin interactions. A few remarks are made on the physical interpretation of the components of the wave function and the relations which they should obey in order to satisfy the Pauli Exclusion Principle.
