 +The Dirac equation describes how the state of a relativistic (= fast moving) quantum system with half-integer spin changes in time.
 +
 +The analogous equation for systems without spin is the [[equations:​klein-gordon_equation|Klein-Gordon equation]].
 +
 +If the system only moves slowly, the Dirac equation becomes the [[equations:​pauli_equation|Pauli equation]]. ​
