It is shown that below the threshold of pair creation, a consistent quantum mechanical interpretation of relativistic spin-0 and spin-1 particles (both massive and mussless) ispossible based an the Hamiltonian-Schrödinger form of the firstorder Kemmer equation together with a first-class constraint. The crucial element is the identification of a conserved four-vector current associated with the equation of motion, whose time component is proportional to the energy density which is constrainedto… 
On the uniqueness of paths for spin-0 and spin-1 quantum mechanics
Abstract The uniqueness of the Bohmian particle interpretation of the Kemmer equation, which describes massive spin-0 and spin-1 particles, is discussed. Recently the same problem for spin-(1/2) was
Fields on the Poincaré Group: Arbitrary Spin Description and Relativistic Wave Equations
In this paper, starting from a pure group-theoretic point of view, we develop an approach to describing particles with different spins in the framework of a theory of scalar fields on the Poincaré
On the nonminimal vector coupling in the Duffin-Kemmer-Petiau theory and the confinement of massive bosons by a linear potential
The vector couplings in the Duffin–Kemmer–Petiau (DKP) theory have been revised. It is shown that minimal and nonminimal vector potentials behave differently under charge-conjugation and
Dirac-K\"{a}hler field, spinor technique, and 2-potential approach to electrodynamics with two charges
From the 16-component Dirac-K\"{a}hler field theory, spinor equations for two types of massless vector photon fields with different parities have been derived. Their equivalent tensor equations in
Electromagnetic Field in de Sitter Expanding Universe: Majorana--Oppenheimer Formalism, Exact Solutions in non-Static Coordinates
Tetrad-based generalized complex formalism by Majorana--Oppenheimer is applied to treat electromagnetic field in extending de Sitter Universe in on-static spherically-symmetric coordinates. With the
Field theory of massive and massless vector particles is considered in the first-order formalism. The Hamiltonian form of equations is obtained after the exclusion of nondynamical components. We
Spinor wave equation of photon
In this paper, we give the spinor wave equations of free and unfree photon, which are the differential equation of space-time one order. For the free photon, the spinor wave equations are covariant,
Research on hidden variable theories: A review of recent progresses
Abstract Quantum Mechanics (QM) is one of the pillars of modern physics: an impressive amount of experiments have confirmed this theory and many technological applications are based on it.
Majorana-Oppenheimer approach to Maxwell electrodynamics in Riemannian space-time
The Riemann -- Silberstein -- Majorana -- Oppengeimer approach to the Maxwell electrodynamics in presence of electrical sources and arbitrary media is investigated within the matrix formalism. The
Relativistic De Broglie matter wave contains SU(n) symmetry
We show that the relativistic matter waves of two particle system contains the SU(2) symmetry; the relativistic matter waves of three particle system contains the SU(3) symmetry. Therefore, the


Relativistic quantum mechanics of bosons
Abstract We show that it is possible to use the Klein-Gordon, Proca and Maxwell formulations to construct multi-component relativistic configuration space wavefunctions of spin-0 and spin-1 bosons in
The Particle Aspect of Meson Theory
1. Introduction For many years a central problem of theoretical physics has been to set up a satisfactory relativistic theory of elementary particles. This problem is yet far from solution, the
The Wave Equation for Spin 1 in Hamiltonian Form
If from the differential equations that hold in a Proca field you select the ten that express the time derivatives of the ten components involved, i.e. of the 'electromagnetic' field and its
The correspondence between the particle and the wave aspects of the meson and the photon
In the Kemmer formulation of the meson equation certain Γk* matrices are introduced. They are determined completely by the condition that for a Lorentz transformation Γk*Ψ transforms as a vector. The
Localized States for Elementary Systems
It is attempted to formulate the properties of localized states on the basis of natural invariance requirements. Chief of these is that a state, localized at a certain point, becomes, after a
