  • We develop a quantization scheme for Maxwell’s equations without source on an arbitrary oriented four-dimensional globally hyperbolic spacetime. The field strength tensor is the key dynamical object and it is not assumed a priori that it descends from a vector potential. It is shown that, in general, the associated field algebra can contain a non-trivial centre and, on account of this, such a theory cannot be described within the framework of general local covariance unless further restrictive… CONTINUE READING
