Abstract : It is well known that the potentials must appear in Schrodinger's equation, because there is no way in quantum mechanics to express the interaction of the electron with the electromagnetic field solely in terms of field quantities. It is the purpose of this note to demonstrate that this and similar assertions are false. (Author)
