Abstract

Contrary to a wide-spread commonplace, an exact, ray-based treatment holding for any kind of monochromatic wavelike features (such as diffraction and interference) is provided by the structure itself of the Helmholtz equation. This observation allows to dispel-in apparent violation of the uncertainty principle-another commonplace, forbidding an exact, trajectory-based approach to wave mechanics.
