Anyway, I came up with my own derivation for Shrodinger's equation. Unlike the normal way it is derived, assuming E=h-bar * omega, and the solutions are complex plane waves, I made a few different assumptions.

I assumed the solutions were waves (ie. they solve the wave equaiton), although I do not specify what form of wave they are. I also assumed time was imaginary. The motivation here was Minkowski space where you can interpret time to be i*c*t. The last assumption was that all angular momentum was quantized as the reduced plank constant.

Writing out the whole derivation here would be cumbersome so I threw it into latex and exported it as a pdf:

I am wondering if my derivation is novel, or is it equivalent to how it is already derived (like on wikipedia), or even correct? I can't seem to find something wrong with it, nor have I seen the equation derived this way before. I suppose you could argue the assumptions are hand wavy.
