## On Representing Particle By a Standing Luminal Wave-Revisiting de Broglie's Phase Wave

**Authors:** V.A.Induchoodan Menon

De Broglie when he introduced the concept of the phase wave to
represent a particle, he assumed that in the rest frame of reference the
particle will have the form of a standing vibration. According to the
author, this was a serious mistake. He shows that instead, had de
Broglie assumed a standing luminal wave structure for the particle, it
would have led him to very exciting insights. The author shows that
in a relativistic transformation the average energy and the momentum
of the forward and the reverse waves forming the standing wave
transform exactly like the energy and momentum of a particle.
Besides, the plane wave expansion which is used to represent a
particle in quantum mechanics is found to emerge directly from this
standing wave structure. He proposes to extend the approach to
incorporate the spin of the particle and also provide a simple
explanation for the Pauli's exclusion principle.
