    Can you tell us anything about why and/or how you are thinking about it? E.g. have you read it anywhere, and if so, a link to the source would be helpful...

    I think what the OP means is that if you take the De Broglie wavelength h/mvγ and multiply by the frequency mc2γ/h, you get c2/v which is more than c. I also would like some more clarity as to exactly why this isn't a problem.
