I went back to my old introductory books on Quantum Mechanics and noticed the derivation of the de Broglie relation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Therefore I have now this question:

How much does the de Broglie relation (p = hb k) depend on Special relativity?

Would the dependence be strong enough that one may consider the de Broglie relation and its experimental confirmations as further support for Special Relativity?

Thanks for your comments

You can find the original derivations by de Broglie in these documents:
