We consider the possibility that the physical spacetime of a quantum particle may be regarded as a four-dimensional hypersurface locally embedded in eightdimensional phase space. We show that, as a consequence, accelerated particles are seen to live in a curved spacetime, and, in the particular case of uniform acceleration, we are led to a generalization of the Rindler metric which implies, for a uniformly accelerated particle, a discrete energy spectrum.

Abstract

We consider the possibility that the physical spacetime of a quantum particle may be regarded as a four-dimensional hypersurface locally embedded in eightdimensional phase space. We show that, as a consequence, accelerated particles are seen to live in a curved spacetime, and, in the particular case of uniform acceleration, we are led to a generalization of the Rindler metric which implies, for a uniformly accelerated particle, a discrete energy spectrum.
