The Friedel sum rule is generalized to relativistic systems of spin-1/2 particles in one dimension. The change of the total energy due to the presence of an impurity is studied. The relation of the sum rule with the relativistic Levinson theorem is presented. Density oscillations in such systems are discussed. Since the Friedel theorem has been of major importance in understanding the impurity scattering in materials, the present results may be useful to explain some phenomena in one dimensional atomic chain, quantum wire, and fermionic many body systems.
