Derivation of a Relativistic Wave Equation more Profound than Dirac’s Relativistic Wave Equation

The author has previously derived an energy-momentum relationship applicable in a hydrogen atom. Since this relationship is taken as a departure point, there is a similarity with the Dirac’s relativistic wave equation, but an equation more profound than the Dirac equation is derived. When determining the coefficients  and β of the Dirac equation, Dirac assumed that the equation satisfies the Klein-Gordon equation. The Klein-Gordon equation is an equation which quantizes Einstein's energy-momentum relationship. This paper derives an equation similar to the Klein-Gordon equation by quantizing the relationship between energy and momentum of the electron in a hydrogen atom. By looking to the Dirac equation, it is predicted that there is a relativistic wave equation which satisfies that equation, and its coefficients are determined. With the Dirac equation it is necessary to insert a term for potential energy into the equation when describing the state of the electron in a hydrogen atom. However, in this paper, a potential energy term is not introduced into the relativistic wave equation. Instead, potential energy is incorporated into the equation by changing the coefficient  of the Dirac equation.
