Note on Casimir's Method of the Sin Summation in the Case of the Meson *
(Received July 30, 1940)
A new form of the vector meson theory is described, in which six-rowed matrices having properties very similar to those of Dirac's matrices are introduced. Making use of this formalism, we have extended Casimir's method of the spin summation (technique of spur) to calculations for radiative processes of the meson. As an application of this method, a derivation of Laporte's scattering formula is given. The relation to Kemmer's form of the meson theory is also discussed.
