**Time in Quantum Mechanics**

by

**Curt A. Moyer**-

**arXiv**

The failure of conventional quantum theory to recognize time as an observable and to admit time operators is addressed. We emphasize the role of the Hamiltonian as the generator of translations in time to construct time states.

**An Introduction to Relativistic Quantum Mechanics**

by

**M. De Sanctis**-

**arXiv**

By using the general concepts of special relativity and the requirements of quantum mechanics, Dirac equation is derived and studied. Only elementary knowledge of spin and rotations in quantum mechanics and standard linear algebra are required.
