The Lorentz invariance of a relativistic QFT is shown to be broken spontaneously at finite temperature with a zero-energy Goldstone spectrum which does not necessarily carry a one-particle structure. The Lorentz behaviour of the temperature is determined and the relation between Gibbs states in different Lorentz frames is clarified. 
Temperature as Order Parameter of Broken Scale Invariance
In algebraic quantum field theory the (inverse) temperature is shown to be a macroscopic order parameter to parametrize mutually disjoint thermal sectors arising from the broken scale invariance
Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking of Lorentz and (Galilei) Boosts in (Relativistic) Many-Body Systems
We extend a result by Ojima on spontaneous symmetry breaking of Lorentz boosts in thermal (KMS) states and show that it is in fact a special case in a more general class of examples of spontaneous
Towards a relativistic KMS-condition
Abstract It is shown that, under quite general conditions, thermal correlation functions in relativistic quantum field theory have stronger analyticity properties in configuration space than those
The Reeh–Schlieder property for thermal field theories
We show that the Reeh–Schlieder property w.r.t. KMS states is a direct consequence of locality, additivity, and the relativistic KMS condition. The latter characterizes the thermal equilibrium states
The Reeh-Schlieder Property for Thermal Field Theories
We show that the Reeh-Schlieder property w.r.t. KMS states is a direct consequence of locality, additivity and the relativistic KMS condition. The latter characterizes the thermal equilibrium states

On the existence of equilibrium states in local quantum field theory
It is shown that any local quantum field theory admits thermodynamical equilibrium states (KMS-states) for all positive temperatures provided it satisfies a “nuclearity condition,” proposed by
The relativistic KMS condition for the thermal n-point functions of the P(φ)_2 model
Thermal quantum field theories are expected to obey a relativistic KMS condition, which replaces both the relativistic spectrum condition of Wightman quantum field theory and the KMS condition, which
Thermodynamic Properties of Non-equilibrium States in Quantum Field Theory
Abstract Within the framework of relativistic quantum field theory, a novel method is established which allows for distinguishing non-equilibrium states admitting locally a thermodynamic


Supersymmetry at finite temperature
Supersymmetry at finite temperature is investigated with the use of thermo field dynamics which is a real-time quantum field theory at finite temperature. By obtaining the supersymmetric perturbation
Temperature and supersymmetry
Abstract We study equal-time correlation functions at finite temperature in field theories with global supersymmetry. Global supersymmetry is found to be broken at finite temperature; the ground
Hamiltonian interpretation of anomalies
A family of quantum systems parametrized by the points of a compact space can realize its classical symmetries via a new kind of nontrivial ray representation. We show that this phenomenon in fact
