Feb 25, 2008 #3 Phrak 4,222 1 thanks for responding robphy! I'm looking for sinusoidal solutions to a 1-form field, A on a psuedo-Riemann manifold (-,+,+,+). *d*d*A=0 yields a set of solutions, but I don't know if it's the most general case. There's an operator (d + \delta)^2, where \delta = *d* called the Laplace-Beltrami that might apply as (*d*d* + d*d*)A=0. After some very tedious expansion over time and spacial indices it collapses to the deAlembertian, \box{A} = 0. Which operator is most general? Even 4th and higher order equations are available as (*d*d*d*d + d*d*d*d* + etc.)A=0.
