I'm doing some calculations and I've run into something rather strange.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I need to evaluate the following dot products

[tex]\vec{\epsilon}_{k,\,s}\cdot\vec{\epsilon}_{-k,\,s'} = ?[/tex]

[tex]\vec{\epsilon}_{k,\,s}^*\cdot\vec{\epsilon}_{-k,\,s'}^* = ?[/tex]

where [itex]\vec\epsilon_{k,\,s}[/itex] is the normalized polarization vector for a single photon with momentum [itex]k[/itex], and spin [itex]s[/itex]. Does anyone know where I can look for these identities?
