Abstract

In a generalized Heisenberg/Schrödinger picture, the unitary representations of the Lorentz group may, for a massive relativistic particle, be used to attribute to waves an extra wavelength that is longer than the de Broglie wavelength. Propagators are defined as spacetime transitions between states with different eigenvalues of the first or the second Casimir operator of the Lorentz algebra.
