@article{Dereziski2005IntroductionTR, title={Introduction to representations of the canonical commutation and anticommutation relations}, author={Jan Dereziński}, journal={Lecture Notes in Physics}, year={2005}, volume={695}, pages={63-143} }

Lecture notes of a minicourse given at the Summer School on Large Coulomb Systems - QED in Nordfjordeid, 2003, devoted to representations of the CCR and CAR. Quasifree states, the Araki-Woods and Araki-Wyss representations, and the lattice of von Neumenn algebras in a bosonic/fermionic Fock space are discussed in detail.
