Abstract in this paper my intention is to present de broglie's personal view on “ matter waves”, with some consequences on the theory of measurement this conception of “matter waves” was at the very origin of wave mechanics and was, later on, developed by de broglie and his collaborators during the last 25 years. On the web site of the fondation louis de broglie (http://wwwensmpfr/aflb/) one can find an english translation of de broglie's phd dissertation the fondation louis de broglie, dedicated to the pursuit of the ideas of louis de broglie, has edited texts and books of various level of scholarship commenting different aspects of. His theoretical work was further coordinated and amplified in his doctoral thesis, published in 1924 the thesis attracted the attention of einstein, who publicly expressed his high regard for this work as a result, de broglie's theory received much attention from theoretical physicists but, as far as was then realized, there was. Keywords:quantum theory special relativity de broglie relation planck- einstein relation 1 introduction in the autumn of 1924, the french physicist louis de broglie submitted to the judgement of sorbonne university in paris, one of the most famous phd theses in the history of physics  his results, as he confessed. Louis de broglie, already from his thesis, came to the attention of the scientific world for his innovative theories on wave-particle duality in 1923 he mathematically demonstrated the fusion of particles to spin, and called it “psi wave “ so, according to the broglie, the light looks like this: as the fusion of two particles of. 72, 1220 (2004)] the de broglie-bohm pilot-wave interpretation of quantum theory by ward struyve [phd thesis, ghent university, 2004] why isn't every physicist english translation by dileep karanth] elementare überlegungen zur interpretation der grundlagen der quanten-mechanik by albert einstein [from scientific.

Quotations below are from those two sections of the dissertation, and generally follow in translation, haslett  de broglie saw that if the planck-einstein relation e = hν (1) for the photon were extended to matter, and equated with einstein's statement e = mc2 (2) of the equivalence of mass and energy.

Einstein rather quickly responded, “i believe it is a first feeble ray of light on this worst of our physics enigmas” de broglie wrote in the german translation of his dissertation, “einstein from the beginning has supported my thesis” (de broglie's dissertation is also available in a modern translation into english. David sloan wilson's 1975 dissertation in evolutionary biology at michigan state has taken on a legendary status among msu students the dissertation, which stands at 12 pages long (including references), is an entirely theoretical work putting forward a trait-group model of group selection, which he published in pnas.
