  • We present in this paper a covariant quantization of the “massive” vector field on de Sitter (dS) space based on analyticity in the complexified pseudo-Riemanian manifold. The correspondence between unitary irreducible representations of the de Sitter group and the field theory on de Sitter space–time is essential in our approach. We introduce the Wightman two-point function for the case of generalized free vector fields on de Sitter space. This function satisfies the conditions of (a… CONTINUE READING
