This work presents a Clean Quantum Theory of the Electron, based on Dirac's equation. "Clean" in the sense of a complete mathematical explanation of the well known paradoxes of Dirac's theory and a connection to classical theory. It discusses the existence of an accurate split between physical states belonging to the electron and to the positron as well as the fact that precisely predictable observables must preserve this split.

From the reviews:

"In this very interesting book, the author proposes a modification of Dirac's theory of the electron, that he believes to be free of the systematic well-known difficulties that give rise to the usual paradoxes. ... the direction he describes in this book is promising, and will hopefully open the way to the construction of a more general framework." (Alberto Parmeggiani, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2008 j)

"In this book Heinz Otto Cordes tries to make a contribution from the point of view of a mathematician, and it is certainly an interesting one. ... it is very pleasant reading for the more mathematically inclined person, and those with some interest in physics will enjoy the many insightful remarks about quantum mechanics immersed in the text. I warmly recommend this book to mathematicians and mathematical physicists interested in the Dirac equation." (Bernd Thaller, SIAM Review, Vol. 50 (2), 2008)
