Zitterbewegung and energy

  1. Jul 17, 2015 #1
    From this http://arxiv.org/abs/1411.1854
    And $$E=\hbar\omega$$ We get $$E=2mc^2$$

    Which is twice the relativistic energy. Why is that ?

    At the top of the second page, they define zitter:
    The ω which you plug into the equations is the zitter frequency, which is why your relativistic energy expression is wrong.
