# On the Spin-Statistics Connection in Curved Spacetimes

@inproceedings{Fewster2016OnTS, title={On the Spin-Statistics Connection in Curved Spacetimes}, author={Christopher J. Fewster}, year={2016} }

The connection between spin and statistics is examined in the context of locally covariant quantum field theory. A generalization is proposed in which locally covariant theories are defined as functors from a category of framed spacetimes to a category of ∗-algebras. This allows for a more operational description of theories with spin, and for the derivation of a more general version of the spin-statistics connection in curved spacetimes than previously available. The proof involves a “rigidity… CONTINUE READING
