133), Ar is the area of the electromagnetic beam, c the vacuum speed of light and m0 is the vacuum permeability in SI units. The analysis can be repeated by identifying the scalar field f with a scalar component A of the vacuum four potential Am . Thus Eqs. (118) and (119) become 1 A ¼ pﬃﬃﬃ ðA1 þ iA2 Þ ð134Þ 2 1 AÃ ¼ pﬃﬃﬃ ðA1 À iA2 Þ ð135Þ 2 and the Lagrangian (120) becomes L ¼ ðqm AÞðqm AÃ Þ ð136Þ Local gauge transformation is defined as A ! exp ðÀiÃðxm ÞÞA AÃ ! exp ðiÃðxm ÞÞAÃ ð137Þ and the gauge-invariant Lagrangian (126) becomes 1 L ¼ ðqm A þ ig Am AÞðqm A À ig Am AÃ Þ À F mn Fmn 4 ð138Þ Finally, the inhomogeneous field equation in the vacuum becomes qn F mn ¼ ÀigcðAÃ Dm A À ADm AÃ Þ ð139Þ 28 m.
This flaw is usually overlooked by stating that the field is in a source-free region, or that the field is infinitely distant from its source. Both explanations are unsatisfactory. Another example of functional variation is the Lagrangian 1 1 L ¼ À Fmn F mn þ m2 Am Am 4 2 ð109Þ which leads to the Proca equation in the received view . The obvious problem with this Lagrangian is that for identically nonzero m, the product Am Am is not gauge-invariant on the U(1) level. Setting that problem aside for the sake of argument, contravariant–covariant notation gives Am Am ¼ A20 À A2X À A2Y À A2Z ð110Þ so that functional variation proceeds as follows: qL 2m2 A0 qL 2m2 AX qL 2m2 AY qL 2m2 AZ ; À ; À ; À ¼ ¼À ¼À ¼À qA0 qAX qAY qAZ 2 2 2 2 ð111Þ The overall result is qL ¼ m2 Am qAm ð112Þ giving the received Proca equation : qm F mn þ m2 An ¼ 0 ð113Þ The Lagrangian (109) is not gauge-invariant, so Eq.
The first two equations of the triad (78) are complex conjugate Proca equations of the form ð& þ k2 Þ An ¼ 0 ð& þ k2 ÞAnÃ ¼ 0 ð80Þ so we obtain the U(1) Proca equation, but with the advantages of O(3) electrodynamics inbuilt. In summary, the structure of the Proca equation on the O(3) level is as follows: ð81Þ Dm Gmn ¼ 0 which is equivalent to qm Gmn ¼ ÀgAm Â Gmn ð82Þ The latter equation can be expanded in the basis ((1),(2),(3)) as  r Dð1ÞÃ ¼ igðAð2Þ Dð3Þ À Dð2Þ Að3Þ Þ r Dð2ÞÃ ¼ igðAð3Þ Dð1Þ À Dð3Þ Að1Þ Þ r Dð3ÞÃ ¼ igðAð1Þ Dð2Þ À Dð1Þ Að2Þ Þ r Â Hð1ÞÃ À qDð1ÞÃ ð2Þ ð3Þ ¼ ÀigðcA0 Dð3Þ À cA0 Dð2Þ þ Að2Þ Â Hð3Þ À Að3Þ Â Hð2Þ Þ qt r Â Hð2ÞÃ À qDð2ÞÃ ð3Þ ð1Þ ¼ ÀigðcA0 Dð1Þ À cA0 Dð3Þ þ Að3Þ Â Hð1Þ À Að1Þ Â Hð3Þ Þ qt r Â Hð3ÞÃ À qDð3ÞÃ ð1Þ ð2Þ ¼ ÀigðcA0 Dð2Þ À cA0 Dð1Þ þ Að1Þ Â Hð2Þ À Að2Þ Â Hð1Þ Þ qt ð83Þ It can be seen that, in general, there are extra Noether charges and currents that define the photon mass gauge invariantly.
