The massless free field equation is supposed to turn into the empty space Maxwell's equations for spin 1 (like a photon).

But, in the book I'm using, Roger Penrose's "The Road to Reality", there seems to be a typo, because it's not quite working out. Almost but not quite.

Can someone tell me what the problem is?

See http://camoo.freeshell.org/33.24quest.pdf" [Broken]

for details.

(sorry if you find it inconvenient to click on the link, but I'm not going to rewrite everything into the forum's Latex).
