By the use of complete orthonormal sets of nonrelativistic scalar orbitals introduced by the author in previous papers the new complete orthonormal basis sets for two-and four-component spinor wave functions, and Slater spinor orbitals useful in the quantum-mechanical description of the spin-1/2 particles by the two-and four-component relativistic equations are established in position, momentum and four-dimensional spaces. These function sets are expressed through the corresponding nonrelativistic orbitals. The analytical formulas for overlap integrals over four-component relativistic Slater spinor orbitals with the same screening constants in position space are also derived. The relations obtained in this study can be useful in the study of different problems arising in the relativistic quantum mechanics when the position, momentum and four dimensional spaces are employed.
