Noncommutative Deformations of Wightman Quantum Field Theories

  title={Noncommutative Deformations of Wightman Quantum Field Theories},
  author={Harald Grosse},
Quantum field theories on noncommutative Minkowski space are studied in a model-independent setting by treating the noncommutativity as a deformation of quantum field theories on commut ative space. Starting from an arbitrary Wightman theory, we consider special vacuum representations of its Weyl-Wigner deformed counterpart. In such representations, the effect of the noncommutativity on the basic structures of Wightman theory, in particular the covariance, locality and regularity properties of… CONTINUE READING
