We consider the quantized electromagnetic field in nonrelativisticquantum electrodynamics, which is given by the solution of the Cauchyproblem for the Maxwell equation as an operator-valued distributionacting on an indefinite metric space. According to the Gupta-Bleulerformalism, we derive the physical Hilbert space from the indefinitemetric space. We also discuss the scattering theory of the quantizedelectromagnetic field.
