# Inequivalent Vacuum States in Algebraic Quantum Theory

@article{Sardanashvily2015InequivalentVS, title={Inequivalent Vacuum States in Algebraic Quantum Theory}, author={Gennadi A Sardanashvily}, journal={arXiv: Mathematical Physics}, year={2015} }

The GNS representation construction is considered in a general case of topological involutive algebras of quantum systems, including quantum fields, and inequivalent state spaces of these systems are characterized. We aim to show that, from the physical viewpoint, they can be treated as classical fields by analogy with a Higgs vacuum field.
