Hi, I am new to this forum, and to physics in general. I have been reading the basics of General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics but am yet to learn the mathematical side. I am just trying to wrap my head around particle-wave duality and specifically, the wave quantifying of elementary particles. When particles like leptons or quarks act as waves, how are these described? (In a basic sense). I am somewhat envisioning each particle having its own unique characteristics of frequency and amplitude within a quantum. Is this even close? I understand light as frequency modulation, but is that all at a constant amplitude? And is the amplitude of a wave how we differentiate at all? I apologize if that made no sense. As I say, only just embarking on this amazing field and I intend to pursue it indefinitely, so your answers won't go amiss! Thanks!
