I read through DeBroglie's original paper  and also a modern explanation on the same (attached).
The first contradiction that DeBroglie arrives at is simple enough  he considers the 'waveparticle' as observed from a stationary frame  and from a moving frame. The 'inner frequency' of the waveparticle is
v' = v SQRT (1Beta^2) Equation (1)
Now, he looks at the Energy transformation  and arrives at  v' = v / [SQRT (1Beta^2)]. equation (2)
(1) and (2) are different  that is plain to see. To explain this difference, deBroglie assumes ANOTHER fictitious wave associated with the particle. This is the part I am having trouble with  can anyone shed light on this second wave  and how it resolves the dilemma?
Page 2 in the attached article discusses this fully.
