SummaryIn this paper a one-to-one correspondence is established between space-time metrics of general relativity and the wave equations of quantum mechanics. This is done by first taking the square root of the metric associated with a space and from there, passing directly to a corresponding expression in the dual space. It is shown that in the case of a massless particle, Maxwell’s equation for a photon follows while in the case of a particle with mass, Dirac’s equation results as a first… Expand

A one-to-one correspondence is established between linearized space-time metrics of general relativity and the wave equations of quantum mechanics. Also, the key role of boundary conditions inExpand
Exact Solution of a Linear Wave Equation in Cosmological General Relativity
A linear second-order wave equation is presented based on cosmological general relativity, which is a space-velocity theory of the expanding universe. The wave equation is shown to be exactlyExpand
