For over thirty years the majority of theoretical physicists have agreed on the interpretation of quantum physics and wave mechanics that originates from the concepts of Niels Bohr and his followers. Professor de Broglie, on the other hand, has been led to a view of the wave-particle duality of matter that is completely different from that of the Copenhagen School. In this volume he reviews the interpretation of wave mechanics that he proposed earlier under the name of the Theory of the Double Solution, and also discusses his most recent work on this subject. In particular, he stresses the importance of introducing the random element, which corresponds to the hypothesis of the subquantum medium of Bohm and Vigier, into the theory. The author's main purpose, however, is to undertake a thorough criticism of the orthodox interpretation, bringing to light its inadequacies and obscurities, and to review the paradoxes arising from them. In so doing he expresses his conviction that the usual formalism, thought strict in appearance and generally leading to precise conclusions, does not provide a profound and convincing explanation of the physical reality on the sub-microscopic. This profound discussion should greatly stimulate all those interested in the formation of an intelligible concept of the phenomena of quantum physics.
