Mathematical Theory of Quantum Fields Paperback / softback
by Huzihiro (Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Science and Technology, Science University of Araki
Part of the International Series of Monographs on Physics series
This is an introduction to the mathematical foundations of quantum field theory, using operator algebraic methods and emphasizing the link between the mathematical formulations and related physical concepts.
It starts with a general probabilistic description of physics, which encompasses both classical and quantum physics.
The basic key physical notions are clarified at this point.
It then introduces operator algebraic methods for quantum theory, and goes on todiscuss the theory of special relativity, scattering theory, and sector theory in this context.
