Wave-particle duality explanation?

  1. Mar 11, 2015 #1
    Hi,

    Is there a mathematical equation that for itself can explain, or be deducted from it the wave-particle duality? I mean something that connects that 2 concepts in physics equations?

    sorry if my english isn't very good..

    PD: If you can recommend me a paper or a book that describes and explains the wave-particle duality I will appreciate it a lot.

    Thanks in advance and regards.

    Maybe you should start by reading this FAQ and then see if you still want to ask that question:

    Also check out the following:

    Note, although the above states it, remember by wave they mean wave-function which isn't quite the same thing as a wave.

    Thanks
