Abstract A theory on the coupling of elementary particles with the electromagnetic field is presented. All the supplementary conditions are considered as constraint equationa imposed on the wave function and it is implied that only 2s + 1 (s = spin) of its components are really independent. In the free field case, all the elementary particles obey the Klein-Gordon equation of motion. To introduce the electromagnetic field in a general way a basic interaction involving the transformation matrix of the wave function is considered. A process is described, by means of which a gauge invariant equation of motion can be constructed. The theory is renormalizable and describes particles having the normal gyromagnetic factor 2 for any spin value.
