Where does the Schrödinger Equation come from?

This looks like an interesting paper on the mathematical structure that makes the Schrödinger equation linear, and how it’s related to the classical (nonlinear) Hamilton-Jacobi equation.

I’d be interested to compare their approach to the the formulation of Bohm’s (hidden-variable quantum) theory that casts the equations of motion as a Hamilton-Jacobi equation with an extra (nonlocal) quantum potential. Food for thought.
