  • We proceed to the quantization of the massless vector field in the de Sitter (dS) space. This work is the natural continuation of a previous article devoted to the quantization of the dS massive vector field [J. P. Gazeau and M. V. Takook, J. Math. Phys. 41, 5920 (2000); T. Garidi et al., ibid. 43, 6379 (2002).] The term “massless” is used by reference to conformal invariance and propagation on the dS lightcone whereas “massive” refers to those dS fields which unambiguously contract to… CONTINUE READING
