LSZ theorem for photons

+ 4 like - 0 dislike
80 views

Is there any discussion on what the LSZ theorem for photons looks like? I would rather like a discussion of this in axial gauge $A_0 = 0$ (instead of the usual Lorenz gauge), but anything would do.

This seems to be asking for a commentary. Is there something specific you want to know?

This is a reference request I guess...

LSZ reduction for photons is discussed e.g. in (little) Chapter 56 of Srednicki's book

There is a draft (and errata) available for free download at the authors homepage: web.physics.ucsb.edu/~mark/qft.html
