A new approach to the Efinger model for a nonlinear quantum theory for gravitating particles

  • G. Adomian


A general solution is obtained for a model of a nonlinear quantum theory for gravitating particles proposed by H. Efinger. The solution procedure is easily generalized to space-time or stochastic formulations.
