Motion of electron with anomalous moments in parallel electric and magnetic fields

Abstract

An accurate solution is obtained for the Dirac equation describing the motion of an electron with anomalous moments in constant, homogeneous, and parallel electric and magnetic fields. The system of solutions obtained is shown to be orthogonal and complete with respect to the scalar product defined in the “null” plane XoX3=const. The solutions obtained pass smoothly in the limit to steadystate solutions describing the motion of an electron with anomalous moments in a homogeneous magnetic field.
