We begin by reviewing Dirac’s treatment of the magnetic monopole. While we will take a brief look at some of the basic ideas of quantum mechanics, very few details are actually needed for Dirac’s elegant derivation. Our treatment of the basics is close to [L-L], with all the physics carefully eliminated.
