Gordon identity manipulation?

  1. Feb 16, 2016 #1
    The Gordon identity allows us to solve using

    $$2m \bar{u}_{s'}(\textbf{p}')\gamma^{\mu}u_{s}(\textbf{p}) = \bar{u}_{s'}(\textbf{p}')[(p'+p)^{\mu} -2iS^{\mu\nu} (p'-p)_{\nu}]u_{s}(\textbf{p}) $$

    But how would we solve for

    $$2m \bar{u}_{s'}(\textbf{p}')\gamma^{\mu}v_{s}(\textbf{p}) $$

    Would a rederivation of the Gordon identity be required?
