I Question on de Broglie matter waves

  1. Apr 22, 2016 #1
    In de Broglie's original proof of the theorem of phase harmony, the frequency of the moving wave of energy mc^2 (not the internal periodic phenomenon wave) is multiplied by the following term

    ##freq * ( t - \frac{\beta * x}{c} ) ##

    Does anyone have an idea where the fraction comes from? All help appreciated.

    Never mind... I got it! answer is on pg 40 of de Broglie's introduction to wave mechanics!
