Hi, I am struggling with a problem in field theory:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We are looking at a Chern-Simons Lagrangian describing a massive A field:

[itex]L = -\frac{1}{4} F^{\mu\nu}F_{\mu\nu}+\frac{m}{4}\epsilon^{\mu\nu \rho}F_{\mu\nu}A_{\rho}[/itex]

I find those field equations:

[itex]\partial_{\mu}F^{\mu\lambda}=-\frac{m}{2} \epsilon^{\lambda\mu\nu}F_{\mu\nu}[/itex] and now I need to show that F satisfies the Klein-Gordon equation: [itex](\Box+m^2)F_{\mu\nu}=0[/itex] using the EL equations, but after a time playing with both equations, I still can't prove that.
