Paper Abstract

It has been found that, if a dispersion-free primary wave packet being identical with a material particle in the four-dimensional space is introduced, then the Fourier central component of the primary wave packet has a factor which is the de Broglie wave function. Thus it is infered that the electromagnetic wave is related to the Fourier central component of the photon as a primary wave packet. A light pulse like the Schrodinger wave packet is a secondary wave packet which may be even infinitely short in time, even infinitely small in space and may contain even infinitely small average number of photons.
