we have seen that for massless (rest) patricle.we can relate the particle nature with the wave nature by einstein's relation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

what about the matter waves?

we cann't use the same relativistic eqation for the momentum energy relation to generalise that to matter waves too,because rest mass is not zero.Griener mentions that it is postulate,if we try other form then we can get rid off complex schrodinger wave function.

waiting for reply
