    What results in Chirality? And what is the physical implication of chirality in Dirac equation?

    There's nothing interesting in chirality in the Dirac eqtn. It's much more interesting to analyze the Weyl equation and Weyl spinors...

    Thank you for the comment. Is Weyl equation just Dirac Equation taking the limit that the mass is zero?
