A covariant quantization scheme employing reducible representations of canonical commutation relations with positive-definite metric and Hermitian four-potentials (an alternative to the Gupta-Bleuler method) is tested on the example of quantum electromagnetic fields produced by a classical current. The Heisenberg dynamics can be consistently formulated since the fields are given by operators and not operator-valued distributions. The scheme involves a Hamiltonian whose free part is modified but… 
Quantization of free electromagnetic field: A different approach to the time-like polarization
A four-dimensional photon polarization space, such that gives a different interpretation of the ladder operators for the time-like degree comparing to the Gupta-Bleuler formulation is presented. This
Two-spinors, oscillator algebras, and qubits: aspects of manifestly covariant approach to relativistic quantum information
The first part of the paper reviews applications of 2-spinor methods to relativistic qubits and electromagnetic fields quantized by means of harmonic oscillator Lie algebras, and details of the representation I employ in field quantization are discussed.
Regularization just by quantization -- a new approach to the old problem of infinities in quantum field theory (Draft of lecture notes)
This is the current form of lecture notes on my approach to field quantization. I explain on a simple scalar-field model the physical motivation and show some preliminary applications (field produced
Theory versus experiment for vacuum Rabi oscillations in lossy cavities. II. Direct test of uniqueness of vacuum
The paper continues the analysis of vacuum Rabi oscillations we started in part I [Phys. Rev. A 79, 033836 (2009)]. Here we concentrate on experimental consequences for cavity QED of two different
Reducible Quantum Electrodynamics. I. The Quantum Dimension of the Electromagnetic Field
In absence of currents and charges the quantized electromagnetic field can be described by wave functions which for each individual wave vector are normalized to one. The resulting formalism involves
Relativistic EPR-type experiments for photons in the background of reducible representation HOLA algebras
Relativistic EPR-type experiments for photons in the background of reducible representation algebras are discussed. A model for the four Bell states, such that maintains maximally correlated in two

The question is discussed whether the momentum of a photon has a quantum uncertainty or whether it is a classical quantity. The latter assumption is the main characteristic of reducible Quantum


Nonlocal regularizations of gauge theories.
By varying the scale of nonlocality one can obtain gauge-invariant regularization schemes which are manifestly Poincar\'e invariant, perturbatively unitary, and free of automatic subtractions.
