Suppose we have either a massive or massless complex field in 3 space and one time dimensions. Suppose we force (or drive) the field on the surface of a small sphere with a function like,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

exp(-t^2)*exp(-iωt)

I'm guessing the result of such forcing will be a circularly polarized wave that travels in the outward radial direction. Can torsion be somehow associated with such a wave?

Edit, let ω = 10 or more, yeilds a nice graph,

Thanks for any help!
