Quantum geometry from coordinate transformations relating quantum observers

Abstract

The relativity principle that the law of propagation for light has the same form for all macroscopic observers is extended to include quantum observers; i.e., observers who may be large, but not infinitely large, by comparison with quantum mechanical systems. This leads to the extension of the covariance group from the diffeomorphisms to the conservation group (which is the largest group of coordinate transformations under which conservation laws are covariant statements) and, thus, to the quantum geometry and quantum unified field theory considered in a previous paper.
