An integral representation as a function of invariants is found for the Fourier transform of the matrix element between the vacuum and a one-particle state of the retarded commutator of two currents. A special case is a spectral representation for the vertex as a function of momentum transfer. The threshold in this representation is lower than that found in the usual perturbation theory.
