Cook, James L., Relativistic nuclear and particle reaction theory, Doctor of Philosophy thesis, , University of Wollongong, 1969. http://ro.uow.edu.au/theses/2106
The thesis deals with a relativistic formulation of nuclear interactions and certain extensions of reaction matrix theory. In Chapter I the interpretation of covariant coordinates is discussed in detail in order that subsequent results can be interpreted. The formal Hamiltonian method for obtaining results analogous to classical physics is derived in Chapter II, In particular, the role of covariant angular momentum is given a prime significance to the solution of relativistic problems of several particles in motion.
