Nonlinear, nonrelative wavefunction

  1. Oct 16, 2004 #1
    Denying the unification of general relativity and quantum mechanics seem to be the simultaneous requirements of relativism and nonlinearity for the wavefunction. Wavefunction linearity and relativity are seamlessly incorporated under the physics of Fermi. Has there yet been a successful theory explaining the wavefunction as nonlinear, not necessarily relative?

    How does this link you suggested above relate to the nonlinearity of (relativistic) wavefunctions? I searched its nine pages for the term "nonlinear" and got no results; searching for "wave-function" (sic) obtained only two results.

    What would a nonlinear wave function look like? Would it have an appearance like

    [tex]\Psi \ne P: \frac{\psi}{2}[/tex]?
