A (more detailed) introduction to constructive algebraic quantum field theory


The tools and techniques of AQFT have been developed to the point where it has become possible to make new progress on one of the most difficult problems in quantum field theory - the mathematically rigorous construction of quantum field models. In this talk I will provide more details about the purely algebraic constructions of quantum field models in (2- and) 4-dimensional Minkowski space, which I briefly reviewed in LQP24 the preceding Friday. There will be ample opportunity for questions.
