Abstract

A classical interpretation of spin is that of an internal angular momentum. Thus, a classical state of a non-relativistic particle with spin r > 0 is specified by the position q, the momentum p, and the spin vector S such that
$$ {{{\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle-}$}}{S}}}^{2}} = {\text{ }}{{{\text{r}}}^{2}}. $$
