In this paper we derive and describe how the EM

radiation field looks like in an arbitrary higher

dimensional space.

radiation field looks like in an arbitrary higher

dimensional space.

The work strongly suggest that we should have seen

signs from these higher dimensions already, that is,

if they exist. We should have seen the effects directly

via the nature of the electromagnetic radiation

originating from charges moving and accelerating

within these higher dimensions.

The paper itself requires a graduate physics level for

a good understanding. Care has been taken to make

it as accessible as possible. As often happens, after

finishing the document I found out that much of the

paper isn't really original work. It is mentioned that

a full derivation of the massless propagators in the

space-time domain of any dimension is also given in

reference [1]. Reverences [2] and [3] show identical

results as we do. Interestingly, reference [3]

discusses gravitons instead of photons. The

correspondence is of course the result of both

having massless propagators with the difference

that the gravitons correspond to a spin 2 tensor

field and the photons to a spin 1 vector field.

[1] S. Hassani, Mathematical Physics, (Springer-

Verlag, New York, 1998) Is mentioned to contain

a complete derivation of the massless propagators

in the space-time domain in any dimensional space.
