## Main Question or Discussion Point

How can I prove that the eigenvalues of the operator ## i\gamma^\mu \partial_\mu ## are non-negative?

I've tried using the ansatz ## \psi=u(p) e^{ip_\nu x^\nu} ## but it didn't help.

I've also tried playing with the equation using the properties of gamma matrices but that doesn't seem to lead anywhere too.

Thanks
