A method is given for quantizing any relativistic wave equation for a particle of arbitrary spin and non-zero finite values of the rest-mass, which can be written in the canonical form\((\alpha ^k p_k + \chi ) \psi = 0.\) The general commutation rule of theψ andψ† is given by (35) in every case.
A necessary and sufficient condition to be satisfied by the α’s in order that the charge-density and the energy density be non-zero has been deduced and is that the minimal equation ofα0 should not have repeated factors other thanα0 itself.
