Abstract
A mathematical framework that unifies the standard formalisms of special relativity and quantum mechanics is proposed. For this a Hilbert space H of functions of four variables x,t furnished with an additional indefinite inner product invariant under Poincare transformations is introduced. For a class of functions in H that are well localized in the time variable the usual formalism of nonrelativistic quantum mechanics is derived. In particular, the interference in time for these functions is suppressed; a motion in H becomes the usual Shrodinger evolution with t as a parameter. The relativistic invariance of the construction is proved. The usual theory of relativity on Minkowski spacetime is shown to be ``isometrically and equivariantly embedded'' into H. That is, classical spacetime is isometrically embedded into H, Poincare transformations have unique extensions to isomorphisms of H and the embedding commutes with Poincare transformations.
