Abstract: The Dirac equation is a relativistic equation that describes the spin-1/2 particles.  We talk about Dirac equations in Minkowski spacetime. In a geometric viewpoint, we can see that the spinor fields satisfying the Dirac equations enjoy the so-called peeling properties. It means the null components of the solution will decay at different rates along the null hypersurface. Based on this decay mechanism, we can obtain a fresh insight to the spinor null forms which is used to prove a small data global existence result especially for some quadratic Dirac models.
