Cariñena: The classification of first and second order natural quantum Lagrangians appearing in the covariant quantum mechanics for curved Galilei spacetime is given by usig methods of natural operators [see I. Kolár, P. W. Michor and J. Slovák, Natural operations in differential geometry, Springer, Berlin, 1993; Zbl 0782.53013)]. It is proved that all natural generalized Schrödinger operators are linear and can be induced from natural quantum Lagrangians.
Summary: The natural quantum Lagrangians which appear in Galilei general relativistic quantum mechanics are classified by using methods of natural operators. It is proved that all first order natural quantum Lagrangians are linear combinations (with real coefficients) of the canonical quantum Lagrangian and the product of the scalar curvature of the spacetime vertical connection and the Hermitian product. The classification of all natural generalized Schrödinger operators is given and it is proved that all natural generalized Schrödinger operators can be induced from natural quantum Lagrangians.
