    These formulas were derived earlier (I.Bialynicki-Birula and Z.Bialynicka-Birula, Quantum Electrodynamics, (Pergamon, Oxford, 1975)) for spin 1 particles by inserting the plane wave expansions of the free fields into the formulas for generators expressed by the components of the energy-momentum tensor.Google Scholar
