This volume contains the long overdue first publication in English of Louis de Broglie's 1924 dissertation Recherches sur la théorie des quanta [1] and his 1929 Nobel lecture The Wave Nature of the Electron [2].

The book should be of interest to experts, students and all interested in the origin and the foundations of quantum physics.
