Abstract
1. Derivation of a Logarithmic Wave Function.  Electromagnetic fields may be derived from wavefunctions in at least two ways that are analytically distinct. In the first place four wavefunctions satisfying a divergence relation may be chosen as the components of a 4vector and fieldvectors derived from these four electromagnetic potentials in the usual way. The four potentials may in their turn be derived by differential operations from the components of a 6vector whose components may be taken to be any six wavefunctions. This method is a generalization of the wellknown methods of Fitzgerald and Hertz;(1) it has the disadvantage that the wavefunctions cannot be chosen arbitrarily if magnetic poles are to be excluded.
