We attempt to prove the existence of Reeh-Schlieder states on curved spacetimes in the framework of locally covariant quantum field theory using the idea of spacetime deformation and assuming the existence of a Reeh-Schlieder state on a diffeomorphic (but not isometric) spacetime. We find that physically interesting states with a weak form of theâ€¦ (More)

We prove that the singularity structure of all n-point distributions of a state of a generalised real free scalar field in curved spacetime can be estimated if the two-point distribution is of Hadamard form. In particular this applies to the real free scalar field and the result has applications in perturbative quantum field theory, showing that the classâ€¦ (More)

A quantum field theory in its algebraic description may admit many irregular states. So far, selection criteria to distinguish physically reasonable states have been restricted to free fields (Hadamard condition) or to flat spacetimes (e.g., Buchholz-Wichmann nuclearity). We propose instead to use a modular `p-condition, which is an extension of aâ€¦ (More)
