    • Abstract

       

      Reduced expansions for electromagnetic fields associated with spin-1 particles of imaginary mass (tachyons) have been derived in terms of standard helicity representations of inhomogeneous Lorentz group. The effects of wave equation and reality condition on these reduced expansions to satisfy Maxwell’s field equations have been derived. The reduced expansions of charge and current source densities associated with these fields have also been derived and it has been shown that these fields cannot satisfy the Maxwell’s equations in the absence of both the current and charge source densities.
