I can't seem to find one, but does anyone have a reference to the fourvector polarizations for a massive vector particle in spherical coordinates where a momentum is defined as(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]

p = \{E, |\vec{p}| \sin \theta \sin \phi, |\vec{p}|\sin \theta \cos \phi , |\vec{p}| \cos \theta\}

[/tex]

theta goes from 0..pi (angle off of z axis)

phi from 0..2 pi (angle about z axis)

So I'm just looking for the longitudinal and two transverse components of [itex]\epsilon^{\mu}[/itex]. (Circular basis is probably best).

I can find them for a particle in its rest frame, but I need it in any generic frame (or rather something else's rest frame).

Maye its just obvious and I'm missing it but I can't seem to find it anywhere in generic angles.
