The Dirac Equation describes fields corresponding to elementary spin-½ particles (such as the electron) as a vector of four complex numbers (a bispinor), in contrast to the Schrödinger equation which described a field of only one complex value.

Paul Dirac - Lecturing in Christchurch, New Zealand. It's very rare to see footage of the great man in action. The quality is a bit poor, but it's amazing to hear his voice.

A fabulous biography of the great man.

An illustration of the monopoles shown as large spheres residing at the ends of a Dirac string. The dipoles are represented as dumbbells of magnetic charges and the Dirac string corresponds to a string of overturned dumbbells shown in dark.
