Doppler Shifted “In” and “Out” Longitudinal Matter Waves as the Carriers of Particle Relativistic Momentum and Energy

  •  Dan Wagner    


Momentum and Kinetic Energy equations are developed from the hypothesis that oppositely directed components of harmonically oscillating pseudo standing waves pass through a quantum particle center and can be represented by Longitudinal Matter Waves that carry the particle’s momentum and energy. The Doppler effect on the component wave lengths allows the net forward momentum and kinetic energy to increase with speed well beyond classical values. De Broglie (1925) issues with stationary wavelength and moving pulse rate are resolved in a different manner.

Because a quantum particle is considered to be nothing more than the sum of “in” and “out” matter waves focused through its center, whatever happens to these matter waves determines the future location of that center. This opens the door to physical explanations for gravity, interference, and the slowdown of light in transparent mediums. Gravity, for example, is shown in section 6, to possibly be caused by the local gradient in matter wave speed near a large body like earth.
