Interpretation of Klein-Gordon equation

  1. Jan 27, 2013 #1
    Comparing the Klein-Gordon equation to the equation of motion for a classical harmonic oscillator, I notice that for a particle of mass m,

    [tex] \frac {mc^2}{\hbar} [/tex]

    is a frequency.

    Does this frequency have a physical meaning?
