QUANTUM-MECHANICS IN CURVED SPACEAMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICS
AbstractThe quantum mechanical wave equation for a particle in a Schwarzschild metric is derived using general relativity in the linearized approximation. The significance of the various terms in the effective Hamiltonian is discussed and shown to be associated with the post‐Newtonian terms for the corresponding classical motion.
