Strictification theorems for the homotopy time-slice axiom

  title={Strictification theorems for the homotopy time-slice axiom},
  author={Marco Benini and Victoriano Carmona and Alexander Schenkel},
It is proven that the homotopy time-slice axiom for many types of algebraic quantum field theories (AQFTs) taking values in chain complexes can be strictified. This includes the cases of Haag-Kastler-type AQFTs on a fixed globally hyperbolic Lorentzian manifold (with or without time-like boundary), locally covariant conformal AQFTs in two spacetime dimensions, locally covariant AQFTs in one spacetime dimension, and the relative Cauchy evolution. The strictification theorems established in this… 



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

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

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

Algebraic Quantum Field Theory on Spacetimes with Timelike Boundary

We analyze quantum field theories on spacetimes M with timelike boundary from a model-independent perspective. We construct an adjunction which describes a universal extension to the whole spacetime

Factorization homology of topological manifolds

Factorization homology theories of topological manifolds, after Beilinson, Drinfeld, and Lurie, are homology‐type theories for topological n ‐manifolds whose coefficient systems are n ‐disk algebras

Homological algebra of homotopy algebras

We define closed model category structures on different categories connected to the world of operad algebras over the category C(k) of (unbounded) complexes of k-modules: on the category of operads,

Conformal Generally Covariant Quantum Field Theory: The Scalar Field and its Wick Products

In this paper we generalize the construction of generally covariant quantum theories given in [BFV03] to encompass the conformal covariant case. After introducing the abstract framework, we discuss

New model structures for Algebraic Quantum Field Theory

The main technical tool is a new extension model structure on operadic algebras which is constructed via Bousfield localization and it is expected that this tool is useful in other contexts.

The Generally Covariant Locality Principle – A New Paradigm for Local Quantum Field Theory

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

Algebraic Quantum Field Theory on Curved Spacetimes

In this chapter, we review all background material on algebraic quantum field theory on curved spacetimes which is necessary for understanding the cosmological applications discussed in the next
