In the paper Markov Fields by Edward Nelson the introduction section claims that analytically continuing a Markov process with appropriate symmetry properties yields the solution of the Schrodinger equation.

What is the appropriate symmetry required by a Markov process to solve the Schrodinger equation? Is the symmetry that of the Euclidean group?

Furthermore, how would you show a Markov process with appropriate symmetry is a solution to the Schrodinger equation?
