Abstract: This second paper of a series discusses the formulation of the quantum mechanical equivalent of the relative time classical theory put forward in Part 1. The relativistic wave function is derived and a covariant addition theorem put forward which allows a covariant scattering theory to be established. The free particle eigenfunctions are not plane waves and a covariant partial wave analysis is given. A means is given by which wave functions which yield probability densities in 4-space can be converted to ones yielding the equivalent 3-space density. Bound states are considered and covariant analogues are given of the harmonic oscillator potential, Coulomb potential, the square well potential, and two-body fermion interactions.

Quantum Mechanics JL Cook Australian Journal of Physics 25(2) 141 - 166 Published: 1972 Abstract This paper discusses the formulation of a quantum mechanical equivalent of the relative time classical theory proposed in Part I. The relativistic wavefunction is derived and a covariant addition theorem is put forward which allows a covariant scattering theory to be established. The free particle eigenfunctions that are given are found not to be plane waves. A covariant partial wave analysis is also given. A means is described of converting wavefunctions that yield probability densities in 4-space to ones that yield the 3-space equivalents. Bound states are considered and covariant analogues of the Coulomb potential, harmonic oscillator potential, inverse cube law of force, square well potential, and two-body fermion interactions are discussed.
