Dirac matrix

[di′rak ′mā‚triks]
(quantum mechanics)
Any one of four matrices, designated γμ(μ = 1, 2, 3, 4), each having four rows and four columns and satisfying γμγv+ γvγμ= δμ v , where δμ v is the Kronecker delta function, which matrices operate on the four-component wave function in the Dirac equation. Also known as gamma matrix.

2], d) are independent gamma matrices, then the random matrix [([X.
Further, densities of several other matrix quotients and matrix products involving confluent hypergeometric function kind 1, beta type 1, beta type 2, and gamma matrices are derived.
In the next theorem, we derive the confluent hypergeometric function kind 1 distribution using independent beta and gamma matrices.
Next we will elaborate in [section]3 on the transformation properties of the fields and promotion of the gamma matrices to holonomically described proto-gravity fields in causally consistent manner and in [section]4 give a discussion on the "reality" induced by fields.
