Interacting massive and massless arbitrary spin fields in 4d flat space
Massive and massless arbitrary integer spin fields propagating in four-dimensional flat space are studied. The massive and massless fields are treated by using a light-cone gauge helicity basis formalism. Cubic cross-interactions between massive and massless fields and cubic interactions between massive fields are investigated. We introduce a classification of such cubic interactions and using our classification we build all cubic interaction vertices. Realization of generators of the Poincaré algebra on space of interacting fields is found. As a by-product, some illustrative examples of light-cone form for 3-point invariant amplitudes of massive and massless fields are also discussed.
