The Lorentz transformation of special relativity is derived here from a synthesis of particle velocity v and wave velocity u via the relation uv=c2 for any elementary particle. Here, u is the particle’s phase velocity E/p (where E and p are the particle’s respective energy and momentum), the zero of p corresponds to zero v with respect to the observer, and the zero of E corresponds to zero potential difference with respect to the observer. The wave-particle unity dictated by uv=c2 is an essential ingredient in all wave mechanics, even in a gravity field.
