Hi I need a good example of a four potential that yields a photon
The gauge field of the EM-interaction.
edit : let me ask you this question : "Do you know why a quantumfield yielding a photon must be a 4-field ?"
of course gauge invariance. The e-m exhibits U(1) gauge invariance. (but feel free to remind me about anything of this)
A four potential looks like this: a(q) +b(x)i + c(y)j+ d(z)k
I´m just too lazy to calculate them and have never really done it, but I need to know an example of a(q), b(x), c(y), d(z) for a photon.
ok, can´t find the edit button, but of course functions a, b, c, d in the last message depend on more than one variable (perhaps all q, x, y, z).
Separate names with a comma.
