Spinor algebra and null solutions of the wave equation

Abstract : In this paper we exploit the ideas and formalisms of twistor theory, to show how, on Minkowski space, given a null solution of the wave equation, there are precisely two null directions in $\ker df$, at least one of which is a shear-free ray congruence.
