This paper investigates the relationship between algebraic quantum field theories and factorization algebras on globally hyperbolic Lorentzian manifolds. Functorial constructions that map between these two types of theories in both directions are developed under certain natural hypotheses, including suitable variants of the local constancy and descent axioms. The main result is an equivalence theorem between (Cauchy constant and additive) algebraic quantum field theories and (Cauchy constant… 
Operads for algebraic quantum field theory
We construct a colored operad whose category of algebras is the category of algebraic quantum field theories. This is achieved by a construction that depends on the choice of a category, whose
The algebra of Wick polynomials of a scalar field on a Riemannian manifold
On a connected, oriented, smooth Riemannian manifold without boundary we consider a real scalar field whose dynamics is ruled by $E$, a second order elliptic partial differential operator of metric
A skeletal model for 2d conformal AQFTs
A simple model for the localization of the category CLoc 2 of oriented and time-oriented globally hyperbolic conformal Lorentzian 2-manifolds at all Cauchy morphisms is constructed. This provides an
Quantizing local holomorphic field theories on twistor space
This paper studies a class of four-dimensional quantum field theories which arise by quantizing local holomorphic field theories on twistor space. These theories have some remarkable properties: in
Intertwining operators for symmetric hyperbolic systems on globally hyperbolic manifolds
In this paper, a geometric process to compare solutions of symmetric hyperbolic systems on (possibly different) globally hyperbolic manifolds is realized via a family of intertwining operators. By
BV quantization in perturbative algebraic QFT: Fundamental concepts and perspectives
This paper is mainly based on the talk I presented at the meeting "The Philosophy and Physics of Noether's Theorems" that took place 5-6 October 2018, but it also contains some original results that
The Cauchy problem of the Lorentzian Dirac operator with APS boundary conditions
We consider the classical Dirac operator on globally hyperbolic manifolds with timelike boundary and show well-posedness of the Cauchy initial-boundary value problem coupled to APS-boundary
On the Cauchy problem for Friedrichs systems on globally hyperbolic manifolds with timelike boundary
In this paper, the Cauchy problem for a Friedrichs system on a globally hyperbolic manifold with a timelike boundary is investigated. By imposing admissible boundary conditions, the existence and the

This article provides a review of the literature on rigorous definitions and constructions in Quantum Field Theory, spanning the period of seven decades. Comparing with the ideas and constructions
Locality and causality in perturbative AQFT
In this paper we introduce a notion of a group with causality, which is a natural generalization of a locality group, introduced by P. Clavier, L. Guo, S. Paycha, and B. Zhang. We also propose a

Homotopy theory of algebraic quantum field theories
Motivated by gauge theory, we develop a general framework for chain complex-valued algebraic quantum field theories. Building upon our recent operadic approach to this subject, we show that the

In this paper we compare two mathematical frameworks that make perturbative quantum field theory rigorous: the perturbative algebraic quantum field theory (pAQFT) and the factorization algebras

We introduce an abstract concept of quantum field theory on categories fibered in groupoids over the category of spacetimes. This provides us with a general and flexible framework to study quantum

Abstract: A new approach to the model-independent description of quantum field theories will be introduced in the present work. The main feature of this new approach is to incorporate in a local
Endomorphisms and automorphisms of locally covariant quantum field theories
In the framework of locally covariant quantum field theory, a theory is described as a functor from a category of spacetimes to a category of ∗-algebras. It is proposed that the global gauge group of
