In quantum field theory do we "describe" static electric fields with proper combinations of transvers propagating photons? Is that a basis? Is there a basis using the longitudinal and timelike photons to describe static fields?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks for any help!
