Title: Quantum electrodynamics in the temporal gauge

Abstract

We canonically quantize electrodybamics in the temporal gauge A/sub 0/=0. Realizing commutation relations in a Hilbert space containing unphysical longitudinal photons, we pay special attention to the implementation of Gauss's law and the attendant normalization difficulties for physical states. We tehn formulate the perturbation series and explixitly exhibit equivalence with the standard textbook treatment of the Coulomb gauge.
