Chirality in 2d pAQFT

  title={Chirality in 2d pAQFT},
  author={Simon Crawford and Kasia Rejzner and Beno{\^i}t Vicedo},
In this article, which builds upon the work done in [CRV21], the chiral aspects of 2 dcft on globally hyperbolic Lorentzian manifolds are developed and explored within the perturbative algebraic quantum field theory ( p aqft ) framework. In the example of the massless scalar field on globally hyperbolic 2-dimensional spacetimes, we identify the subalgebras of a given theory comprising only chiral (or anti-chiral) observables. These subalgebras are constructed explicitly, with the help of…

Lorentzian 2D CFT from the pAQFT Perspective

We provide a detailed construction of the quantum theory of the massless scalar field on two-dimensional, globally hyperbolic (in particular, Lorentzian) manifolds using the framework of perturbative

We establish necessary and sufficient conditions for Euclidean Green's functions to define a unique Wightman field theory.

Singularity structure of the two-point function in quantum field theory in curved spacetime

In the point-splitting prescription for renormalizing the stress-energy tensor of a scalar field in curved spacetime, it is assumed that the anticommutator expectation valueG(x,

We propose a new formula for the star product in deformation quantization of Poisson structures related in a specific way to a variational problem for a function S , interpreted as the action
