Square Root of KleinGordon
Replacing $E$ and $p$ by $i\hbar\frac{\partial}{\partial t}$ and $i\hbar\nabla$, respectively, in the energymomentum relation $$E^2=p^2c^2+m_0^2c^4$$ we obtain the KleinGordon operator $$\square=\frac{m_0^2c^2}{\hbar^2},$$ where $$\square=\frac{1}{c^2}\frac{\partial^2}{\partial t^2}+\nabla^2$$ $\square$ is called the d’Alembertian or the wave operator. This time, replacing $E$ and $p$ by … Continue reading

Real Structure, Fundamental Symmetry and Quantum Mechanics
In the standard Hermitian quantum mechanics, the space of states of a quantum mechanical system forms a complex Hilbert space in general. But often the space of states becomes a real vector space. When the space of states is a … Continue reading

Doing Quantum Physics with SplitComplex Numbers
Theory of Photons (Electromagnetism) and WaveParticle Duality of Light Earlier investigations on the nature of light show that, light must be described by electromagnetic waves or by particles (waveparticle duality). de Broglie hypothesized that what is true for photons should … Continue reading
