Space-like infinity and asymptotic photon fields in Q.E.D
Infra-red effects in Q.E.D. are discussed from the point of view of space-like infinity. Using the properties of spin and conformally weighted functions defined on a null cone, an elementary proof of the infra-red coherence condition is given and it is shown that Lorentz symmetry is spontaneously broken on all charged superselection sectors. The implications of these results for quantum gravity are discussed.
