## Main Question or Discussion Point

Particle energy and momentum are obtained from the wave function as eigenfunctions of the spatial and time derivative operators.

Is this true of ElectroMagnetic fields? In other words are E and B eigenfunctions of a differenial operator? I can see that E and B could be interpreted as a kind of generalised velocity (q) because that's how the flux of E and B are definded through a surface. But I can't find any websites or references that show how E and B corespond to generalised co-ordinates and their derivatives. Nor can I find what the EM wavefunction or what its Schrodinger equation might be

Anybody help me?
