Hello!
I am not quite sure how do i verify the complex wave function of EM wave

$\vec{E}$(x,y,z,t)= $\vec{E}$0ei(kz-$\omega$t+$\delta)$

is a function of the wave equation

$\nabla$2$\vec{E}$=$\frac{1}{c^2}$$\frac{∂^2E}{∂t^2}$

Have you tried simply plugging it in and seeing if the two sides are equal?
