Why is the rest energy usually ignored in Schrodinger’s equation? (I am aware of Dirac’s later relativistic equation.) What is the justification? Wouldn’t it change the nature of the solutions to the last equation below if it were included?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Well, ok, it won't copy my Word equations. Why isn't "E" in Schrodinger's spatial equation actually (E-mc^2)?
