Lorentz-boost eigenmodes

Bliokh, Konstantin


Plane waves and cylindrical or spherical vortex modes are important sets of solutions of quantum and classical wave equations. These are eigenmodes of the energy-momentum and angular-momentum operators, i.e., generators of spacetime translations and spatial rotations, respectively. Here we describe another set of wave modes: eigenmodes of the “boost momentum” operator, i.e., a generator of Lorentz boosts (spatiotemporal rotations). Akin to the angular momentum, only one (say, z) component...[Show more]
