Abstract. A rigorous (and simple) proof is given that there is a one-to-one correspondence between causal anti-deSitter covariant quantum field theories on anti-deSitter space and causal conformally covariant quantum field theories on its conformal boundary. The correspondence is given by the explicit identification of observables localized in wedge regions in anti-deSitter space and observables localized in double-cone regions in its boundary. It takes vacuum states into vacuum states, and…

Algebraic Holography in Asymptotically Simple, Asymptotically AdS Space-times
We describe a general geometric setup allowing a generalization of Rehren duality to asymptotically anti-de Sitter space-times whose classical matter distribution is sufficiently well-behaved to
A mechanism for holography for non-interacting fields on anti-de Sitter spacetimes
In the setting of non-interacting Klein-Gordon fields on asymptotically anti-de Sitter spacetimes, we show that algebras of observables localized in a neighborhood of the boundary are subalgebras of
Holographic representation of local bulk operators
The Lorentzian anti-de Sitter/conformal field theory correspondence implies a map between local operators in supergravity and nonlocal operators in the CFT. By explicit computation we construct CFT
Intertwining Operator Realization of anti de Sitter Holography
We give a group-theoretic interpretation of relativistic holography as equivalence between representations of the anti-de Sitter algebra describing bulk fields and boundary fields. Our main result is

Abstract An approach to the Holographic Renormalization Group in the context of Rehren duality — a structural form of the AdS-CFT correspondence, in the context of Local Quantum Physics (Algebraic
Algebraic Conformal Quantum Field Theory in Perspective
Conformal quantum field theory is reviewed in the perspective of Axiomatic, notably Algebraic QFT. This theory is particularly developed in two spacetime dimensions, where many rigorous constructions
A geometrical origin for the covariant entropy bound
Causal diamond-shaped subsets of spacetime are naturally associated with operator algebras in quantum field theory, and they are also related to the Bousso covariant entropy bound. In this work we
Generalized Free Fields and the AdS-CFT Correspondence
Abstract. Motivated by structural issues in the AdS-CFT correspondence, the theory of generalized free fields is reconsidered. A stress-energy tensor for the generalized free field is constructed as
Holography, SL(2,R) symmetry, Virasoro algebra and all that in Rindler spacetime
It is shown that it is possible to define quantum field theory of a massless scalar free field on the event horizon of a 2D-Rindler spacetime. Free quantum field theory on the horizon enjoys
Deformations of Quantum Field Theories on Spacetimes with Killing Vector Fields
The recent construction and analysis of deformations of quantum field theories by warped convolutions is extended to a class of curved spacetimes. These spacetimes carry a family of wedge-like


Anti-de Sitter space and holography
Recently, it has been proposed by Maldacena that large $N$ limits of certain conformal field theories in $d$ dimensions can be described in terms of supergravity (and string theory) on the product of

In this article a non-technical survey is given of the present status of Axiomatic Quantum Field Theory and interesting future directions of this approach are outlined. The topics covered are the

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

Dimensional Reduction in Quantum Gravity
The requirement that physical phenomena associated with gravitational collapse should be duly reconciled with the postulates of quantum mechanics implies that at a Planckian scale our world is not
We show that the Jones-Wassermann subfactors for disconnected intervals, which are constructed from the representations of loop groups of type A, are finite-depth subfactors. The index value and the
The world as a hologram
According to ’t Hooft the combination of quantum mechanics and gravity requires the three‐dimensional world to be an image of data that can be stored on a two‐dimensional projection much like a
