Abstract

We construct an explicit covariant Majorana formulation of Maxwell electromagnetism which does nor make rise of vector 4-potential. This allows us to write a "Dirac" equation for the photon containing all the known properties of it. In particular, the spin and (intrinsic) boost matrices are derived and the helicity properties of the photon are studied.
