Louis de Broglie's Struggle with the Wave-Particle Dualism, 1923-1925

Although the main lines of Louis de Broglie’s attempt to build a wave-particle theory are well known, the development of his views has not received a detailed analysis. This paper will focus upon the conflicts and hesitations that More Louis de Broglie's Struggle with the Wave-Particle Dualism, 1923-1925

The First Steps (and Stumbles) of Bose-Einstein Condensation: Uhlenbeck's Criticism of Einstein's Prediction and its Refutation

Einstein’s prediction of Bose-Einstein condensation, published in 1925, did not bear any fruit until 1938, when Fritz London began applying it to explain the superfluidity of He-II. According to More The First Steps (and Stumbles) of Bose-Einstein Condensation: Uhlenbeck's Criticism of Einstein's Prediction and its Refutation

Schrödinger’s Way to Wave Mechanics

Schrödinger’s work that led to the publication of his six groundbreaking 1926 papers seems to follow a very simple trajectory: in the fall of 1925, Schrödinger came across de Broglie’s thesis about matter waves. He sat down, started calculating, and within a few months and a minor More Schrödinger’s Way to Wave Mechanics
