On the invariant form of the wave and motion equations for a charged point mass

The Schrödinger wave-equation and the equations of motion are written as an invariant Laplace equation and the equation of a geodesic in five-dimensional space respectively. The superfluous fifth coordinate is closely related to the linear differential form of the electromagnetic potential.
