A free quantum field and its canonical conjugate are equivalent to a family of harmonic oscillators (one oscillator for each plane wave), which is in turn equivalent to a quantum theory of free identical bosons. In this note, I will show how all of this works for the relativistic scalar field φ̂(x) and its conjugate π̂(x). And then I will turn around and… CONTINUE READING
