Gravitation and matter waves
A similarity was found by Heaviside [Electrician 31, 281 (1983)] between the laws governing electromagnetism and gravitation. Later, his theory was used in conjunction with de Broglie's hypotheses to obtain gravitational-matter wave equations that could be used to simplify the solution of some problems in physics. This method was applied to: (a) particle in a potential well, and (b) tunneling and harmonic oscillator, without probability considerations, and no uncertainty in the results. In fact, the results were identical to those obtained in quantum mechanics. Also, the Schrödinger's equation was derived with well defined fields replacing the wave function. Moreover, the quantized angular momentum was derived and the results showed that the spin is a property of the orbital motion. Additionally, estimation of the speed of matter waves reveals speeds greater than the speed of light.
