This book demonstrates that fundamental concepts and methods from phenomenological particle physics can be derived rigorously from well-defined general assumptions in a mathematically clean way. Starting with the Wightman formulation of relativistic quantum field theory, the perturbative formulation of quantum electrodynamics is derived avoiding the usual formalism based on the canonical commutation relations. A scattering formalism based on the local-observables approach is developed, directly yielding expressions for the observable inclusive cross-sections without having to introduce the S-matrix. Neither ultraviolet nor infrared regularizations are required in this approach. Although primarily intended for researchers working in this field, anyone with a basic working knowledge of relativistic quantum field theory can benefit from this book.

This book demonstrates that fundamental concepts and methods from phenomenological particle physics can be derived rigorously from well-defined general assumptions in a mathematically clean way.

Starting with the Wightman formulation of relativistic quantum field theory, the perturbative formulation of Perturbative Quantum Electrodynamics and Axiomatic Field Theory book electrodynamics is derived.

This book is concerned with relativistic quantum field theory, especially QED, its most successful example. It is set in the no-man's land between the math ematically rigorous but numerically barren general field theory of the math ematical physicist and the computationally fertile but mathematically some times adventurous field theory of the more phenomenologically inclined, and it.

Perturbative Algebraic Quantum Field Theory (pAQFT), the subject of this book, is a complete and mathematically rigorous treatment of perturbative quantum field theory (pQFT) that doesn’t require the use of divergent quantities.

We discuss in detail the examples of scalar fields and gauge theories and generalize them to QFT on curved spacetimes.

This book develops a novel approach to perturbative quantum field theory: starting with a perturbative formulation of classical field theory, quantization is achieved by means of deformation Author: Michael Duetsch. These papers are in the context of constructive quantum field theory, an area of research particularly active in the late 60s and in the 70s, that tries to give a rigorous mathematical foundation Author: Arthur Jaffe.

Springer-Verlag, 1st. Hardcover. Like New/Like New. "Perturbative Quantum Electrodynamics and Axiomatic Field Theory" is a description of QED from the viewpoint of the Haag-Kastler axioms.

"Introduction to Algebraic and Constructive Quantum Field Theory" is about the quantization of given classical equations in the spirit of Haag-Kastler. Freeman Dyson, Advanced Quantum Mechanics: this is essentially Dyson’s explanation of how he merged the points of view of Feynman, Schwinger and Tomonaga to create a QED that everybody else could understand.

If the Nobel prize were not limited to. $\begingroup$ Yes, for example an axiomatic, mathematically rigorous field theory is certainly non-perturbative and we should be able to derive perturbative QFT from it.

But this is not what I'm asking for, since none of the realistic QFT has such rigorous foundation to date, yet we still have lattice QFT which is also called "non-pertrubative".

The book provides a step by step construction of the framework of relativistic quantum field theory, starting from a minimal set of basic foundational postulates. The emphasis is on a careful and detailed description of the conceptual subtleties of modern field theory. The Real Problem with Perturbative Quantum Field Theory James Duncan Fraser Abstract The perturbative approach to quantum eld theory (QFT) has long been The axiomatic and e ective eld theory approaches to QFT, which have been the locus of much philosophical at- as quantum electrodynamics (QED) and the standard model.

If you get distracted by the top level "Idea"-section you should jump right to where the discussion starts at "Model layer" (meaning: the down-to-earth version of the stroy) which starts out with the inviting sentence.

An Introduction to Quantum Field Theory is a textbook intended for the graduate physics course covering relativistic quantum mechanics, quantum electrodynamics, and Feynman diagrams.

The authors make these subjects accessible through carefully worked examples illustrating the technical aspects of the subject, and intuitive explanations of what is going on behind the mathematics.4/5(10).

This is the beginning of a series that gives an introduction to perturbative quantum field theory (pQFT) on Lorentzian spacetime backgrounds in its rigorous formulation as locally covariant perturbative algebraic quantum field theory.

This includes the theories of quantum electrodynamics (QED) and electroweak dynamics, quantum chromodynamics (QCD), and perturbative quantum.

In theoretical physics, quantum chromodynamics (QCD) is the theory of the strong interaction between quarks and gluons, the fundamental particles that make up composite hadrons such as the proton, neutron and is a type of quantum field theory called a non-abelian gauge theory, with symmetry group SU(3).The QCD analog of electric charge is a property called color.

for which perturbative techniques are suﬃcient to supply theoretical results that agree with experiment. In particular, there exists one theory, where the agreement is extremely good.

This is the quantized theory of interacting electrons and photons called quantum electrodynamics, or shortly QED. Gauge Invariant Interacting TheoryFile Size: KB. Though the principles of quantum electrodynamics were worked out by three individuals, the most famous founder of QED was undeniably Richard P.

Feynman. Feynman was equally good at the mathematics and explanation of a theory, which resulted in his creation of Feynman diagrams — a visual representation of the mathematics that went on in QED. Quantum Field Theory as a Faithful Image of Nature by Hans Christian Öttinger [/09] "This book can be used as a textbook on quantum field theory for students of physics or as a monograph for philosophers and physicists interested in the epistemological foundations of particle physics.".

The complementary approaches, rigor and pragmatics, which are exhibited in the development of quantum mechanics, later came about in a more striking way in connection with the development of quantum electrodynamics (QED) and, more generally, quantum field theory (QFT).

The emphasis on rigor emerges in connection with two frameworks, algebraic Author: Fred Kronz, Tracy Lupher. ization from a non-perturbative (or “exact”) point of view. In fact, one needs to overcome sophisticated problems, such as whether a ﬁeld theory may appear correct on a perturbative level, while it may have no meaning at a non-perturbative level.
