Abstract. Some properties of a pseudo-relativistic Hamiltonian describing a one electron atom - an appropriately projected Dirac operator with Coulomb potential - proposed by Brown and Ravenhall are proven. Self-adjointness is investigated and the explicit form of the Friedrichs extension is given. The behavior of the operator near the critical coupling constant $Z_c$ is studied and the essential spectrum is determined in the case of $Z=Z_c$.
