## Matter as Gravitational Waves ( on the Nature of Electron )

**Authors:** Ernesto López González

Background: At present in physics there are 2 large and seemingly incompatible theories: the theory of General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. A model to derive Quantum Mechanics from General Relativity is presented here.Results: A hexadimensional model with the following characteristics is proposed: 1 temporal dimension and 5 spatial dimensions (3 extended spatial dimensions and a plane of compacted dimensions; where elementary particles like quarks and electrons move at the speed of light in elliptical paths with a perimeter equal to a half Compton wavelength). The charge / mass ratio and the intrinsic magnetic momentum of the electron solely from its mass are estimated.The gravitational wave equations are solved for the particular case of a flat three-dimensional space. The boundary conditions are set assuming that the waves are guided by the curvature of compacted dimensions. In particular, exact solutions are obtained for the case of a motionless particle-pulsation, uniform linear motion particle-pulsation and the relativistic hydrogen atom. These solutions justify the postulates of quantum mechanics and provide numerical solutions compatible with the experimental data. Finally a possible origin of inertia is proposed.Conclusions: We should review the dual wave-particle concept in favour of a solely gravitational wave nature. It is remarkable to note that the same conclusions can be drawn with other configurations of compacted dimensions (whether it be in number, size or topology) A great deal of theoretical effort is needed to expand the hypothesis towards strong and weak nuclear forces and curved tridimensional spaces.
