# Does three dimensional electromagnetic field inherit the spacetime symmetries

@article{Cvitan2016DoesTD, title={Does three dimensional electromagnetic field inherit the spacetime symmetries}, author={Maro Cvitan and Predrag Dominis Prester and Ivica Smoli'c}, journal={Classical and Quantum Gravity}, year={2016}, volume={33}, pages={077001} }

We prove that the electromagnetic field in a -dimensional spacetime necessarily inherits the symmetries of the spacetime metric in a large class of generalized Einstein–Maxwell theories. The Lagrangians of the studied theories have general diff-covariant gravitational part and include both the gravitational and the gauge Chern–Simons terms.
