We consider the massless DuffinKemmerPetiau equation for the
general rotating spacetimes, then find its secondorder form for
a given geometry. Using this secondorder differential equation for
two wellknown cosmological models, the exact solutions of the
massless DuffinKemmerPetiau equation were obtained. On the other
hand, by using spinor form of the Maxwell equations, the propagation
problem is reduced to the solution of the secondorder differential
equation of a complex combination of the electric and magnetic fields.
For these two different approaches, we obtain the spinors in terms
of the fieldstrength tensor.
