physics/0404085 is a brief autobiography of Asher Peres. There, he remembers a paper he sent to De Broglie, Comptes Rendus 239, page 1023 (1954), about the relationship bwetween the Compton wavelength of a particle and the curvature of the space time. Prince Louis tolf him of another similar result from Madamme Tonnelat, but in any case the note was published.

I wonder if some of the PF readers know about it, because it sounds similar to the play we did some weeks before at

thanks for calling attention to this memoir
I was fascinated by Peres childhood memories from a strange horrible time in history
(the Occupation, Peres father being in the Resistance)
and by his ability to make it into a sometimes humorous story
one you could imagine being told after dinner to entertain the company

so the radius of curvature determines the "compton radius" of the illusory mass created by the curvature----do I repeat this correctly?---and Prince Louis de Broglie knew of an earlier paper that noted this but courteously arranged that Peres paper was published also

It could be. But paper title is "about the relativistic mass of the photon" or something so, I will check in a few weeks, if I am able to find the original article.
