One may ask whether the relations between energy and frequency and between momentum and wave vector, introduced for matter waves by de Broglie, are rigorously valid in the presence of gravity. In this paper, we show this to be true for Dirac equations in a background of gravitational and electromagnetic fields. We first transform any Dirac equation into an equivalent canonical form, sometimes used in particular cases to solve Dirac equations in a curved space-time. This canonical form is needed…

The idea of wave mechanics leads naturally to assume the well-known relation $E=\hbar \omega$ in the specific form $H=\hbar W$, where $H$ is the classical Hamiltonian of a particle and $W$ is the
On the Hamiltonian and energy operators in a curved spacetime, especially for a Dirac particle
The definition of the Hamiltonian operator H for a general wave equation in a general spacetime is discussed. We recall that H depends on the coordinate system merely through the corresponding
A simpler solution of the non-uniqueness problem of the covariant Dirac theory
Although the standard generally-covariant Dirac equation is unique in a topologically simple spacetime, it has been shown that it leads to non-uniqueness problems for the Hamiltonian and energy
Some Remarks on Quantum Mechanics in a Curved Spacetime, Especially for a Dirac Particle
Some precisions are given about the definition of the Hamiltonian operator H and its transformation properties, for a linear wave equation in a general spacetime. In the presence of time-dependent

Using a generalized Madelung transformation, we derive the hydrodynamic representation of the Dirac equation in arbitrary curved space-times coupled to an electromagnetic field. We obtain Dirac-Euler
Quantum mechanics, matter waves, and moving clocks
This paper is divided into three parts. In the first (section 1), we demonstrate that all of quantum mechanics can be derived from the fundamental property that the propagation of a matter wave
Dirac Equation and Planck-Scale Quantities
This work investigates in which form quantities with Planck dimensions occur already in the common quantum theory with local Lorentz symmetry. Since such Planck quantities as Planck length or Planck
On the Preponderance of Matter Over Antimatter: Symmetry Properties of the Curved Spacetime Dirac Equations
This article was not publicised before.,Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) is built on the original Dirac equation [1, 2], an equation that exhibits perfect symmetry in that it is symmetric under charge
Dirac Equation in (1+1)-Dimensional Curved Spacetime and the Multiphoton Quantum Rabi Model.
It is shown that gravity generates squeezing of the Dirac particle wave function from the duality between the squeezing term in the multiphoton QRM and the metric coupling in the DCS.
