A method for treating the Hilbert space with an indefinite metric operator is given. Any transformation of state vectors and operators appearing in physics is generated by a "pseudo-unitary operator". For such transformations two kinds of transformation properties, "covariant" and "con­ travariant ", are considered, just like in the case of the Lorentz transformations in the Minkowski space. It is shown that the difficulty of the Lorentz non-invariance of Gupta's theory in the quantum…

Indefinite metric in quantum field theory
The quantization of field theory by introduction of an indefinite metric is discussed. A mathematical introduction to the properties of a vector space with an indefinite metric is presented. The
Quantization of free electromagnetic field: A different approach to the time-like polarization
A four-dimensional photon polarization space, such that gives a different interpretation of the ladder operators for the time-like degree comparing to the Gupta-Bleuler formulation is presented. This
Schrödinger equation for joint bidirectional motion in time
The conventional time-dependent Schrodinger equation describes only unidirectional time evolution of the state of a physical system, i.e. forward or, less commonly, backward. This paper proposes a
