The wave function of photons and their configurational equation

  • W. Królikowski


In the first part of this paper the configurational wave functions of photons are discussed for both the Tamm-Dancoff and the Bethe-Salpeter types as well as for the more general type given by Günther. In the second part the configurational equation corresponding to the Bethe-Salpeter equation is derived for photons. All results obtained in this paper are applicable,mutatis mutandis, to mesons.


Nella prima parte del presente lavoro si discutono le funzioni d’onda di configurazione sia per i tipi di Tamm-Dancoff e di Bethe-Salpeter sia per il tipo più generale dato daGünther. Nella seconda parte si deriva per i fotoni l’equazione di configurazione corrispondente all’equazione di Bethe-Salpeter. Tutti i risultati ottenuti nel presente lavoro si applicano,mutatis mutandis, ai mesoni.
