On the duality condition for a Hermitian scalar field

- J. Bisognano, E. H. Wichmann
- Mathematics
- 1 April 1975

A general Hermitian scalar field, assumed to be an operator−valued tempered distribution, is considered. A theorem which relates certain complex Lorentz transformations to the TCP transformation is… Expand

ON THE DUALITY CONDITION FOR QUANTUM FIELDS

- J. Bisognano, E. H. Wichmann
- Mathematics
- 1 March 1976

A general quantum field theory is considered in which the fields are assumed to be operator‐valued tempered distributions. The system of fields may include any number of boson fields and fermion… Expand

Causal independence and the energy-level density of states in local quantum field theory

- D. Buchholz, E. H. Wichmann
- Mathematics
- 1 June 1986

Within the general framework of local quantum field theory a physically motivated condition on the energy-level density of well-localized states is proposed and discussed. It is shown that any model… Expand

Standard forms of local nets in quantum field theory

- Launey J. Thomas, E. H. Wichmann
- Mathematics
- 1 May 1998

Nets of von Neumann algebras, with local algebras associated with all compact, convex, causally complete subsets of spacetime, are constructed, assuming a particular kind of net considered by… Expand

On the connection between quantum fields and von Neumann algebras of local operators

- W. Driessler, S. Summers, E. H. Wichmann
- Mathematics
- 1 March 1986

The relationship between a standard local quantum field and a net of local von Neumann algebras is discussed. Two natural possibilities for such an association are identified, and conditions for… Expand

SCATTERING OF WAVE PACKETS

- E. H. Wichmann
- Physics
- 1965

The elastic scattering of spinless particles from a spherically symmetric stationary target is considered. The main idea is to describe the incident beam of particles as a certain statistical… Expand

On the causal structure of Minkowski spacetime

- Launey J. Thomas, E. H. Wichmann
- Mathematics
- 1 October 1997

The causal structure of Minkowski spacetime M is discussed, in terms of the notions of causal complementation and causal completion. These geometric notions are relevant for quantum field theory and… Expand

On systems of local operators and the duality condition

- E. H. Wichmann
- Mathematics
- 1 June 1983

Systems of von Neumann algebras of local operators are considered, and a particular procedure for the construction of such a system from any given set of intrinsically local operators is described.… Expand

Asymptotic Properties of the Wave Function for a Bound Nonrelativistic Three‐Body System

- E. Slaggie, E. H. Wichmann
- Physics
- 1 September 1962

The asymptotic properties of a Schrodinger wave function which represents the bound ground state of a system of three interacting particles are examined. It is assumed that the interaction can be… Expand
