# Foundations for proper-time relativistic quantum theory

@article{Gill2015FoundationsFP, title={Foundations for proper-time relativistic quantum theory}, author={Tepper L. Gill and T. F. Morris and Stewart K. Kurtz}, journal={Journal of Physics: Conference Series}, year={2015}, volume={615} }

This paper is a progress report on the foundations for the canonical proper-time approach to relativistic quantum theory. We first review the the standard square-root equation of relativistic quantum theory, followed by a review of the Dirac equation, providing new insights into the physical properties of both. We then introduce the canonical proper-time theory. For completeness, we give a brief outline of the canonical proper-time approach to electrodynamics and mechanics, and then introduce…
