In non-relativistic quantum mechanics time evolution is given by the usual [tex]e^{\frac{-i\hat{H}t}{\hbar}}[/tex] (for non time dependent hamiltonians). How does one time evolve a quantum system in the context of relativity, where time and space have been placed on equal footing? We clearly cannot use the above expression since it is a result of the schrodinger equation which is not relativistically invariant.....help?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
