Re: Re: Schroedinger equation for a photon?

I have examined if the usual Schroedinger equation can be used to describe the photon.

Attached a file of simple calculation, please open and have a look.

The big question I encountered in the calculation is the assumption of "virtual photon mass".

Can we justify this assumption and understand its meaning?
