As someone working in the field created by Prof. Haag - Local Quantum Physics, aka Algebraic Quantum Field Theory - I feel somewhat oblidged to write a review on this book. This is all the more true when a large amount of misunderstandings about this subject among, so to speak, "outsiders", pervade the community of theoretical physics.5/5(5).   The central objective of the book, expressed in the title "Local Quantum Physics", is the synthesis between special relativity and quantum theory to gether with a few other principles of general nature. show more/5(5). In order to explain, using the CI, certain non-local quantum phenomena, like quantum entanglement, free-will and the concept of mind become necessary boundary conditions to a theorem, Bell's Theorem, that somewhat suggests that if reality is made of causally-disconnected events, then entanglement does not need superluminal transfers of s: After long deliberations with my younger colleagues I decided to write a book but to enlarge the topic, the guiding line be­ ing expressed in the title "Local Quantum Physics". In essence this concerns the synthesis between special relativity and our understanding of quantum physics, together with a few other principles of a general nature.

Summers, Gainesville, FL, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 94d, USA "Indeed, both the expert in the field and the novice will enjoy Haag's insightful exposition of the basic physics behind the abstract mathematics, and his unique way of making Brand: Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. The Haag–Kastler axiomatic framework for quantum field theory, introduced by Haag and Kastler (), is an application to local quantum physics of C*-algebra theory. Because of this it is also known as algebraic quantum field theory (AQFT).The axioms are stated in terms of an algebra given for every open set in Minkowski space, and mappings between those. Quantum entanglement is a physical phenomenon that occurs when a pair or group of particles is generated, interact, or share spatial proximity in a way such that the quantum state of each particle of the pair or group cannot be described independently of the state of the others, including when the particles are separated by a large distance. The topic of quantum entanglement is at the heart of. This book is by no means the summa of the field of algebraic quantum field theory" Stephen J.

Local Quantum Physics: Fields, Particles, Algebras (Theoretical and Mathematical Physics series) by Rudolf Haag. Four years aga Walter Thirring suggested to me that it would be desirable to have a book describing recent results of the "algebraic approach" to quantum field theory and statistical mechanics. The short answer is yes, in quantum mechanics quantum non-locality refers to the apparent instantaneous propagation of correlations between entangled systems, irrespective of their spatial separation. In quantum field theory, the notion of locality may have a different meaning, as pointed out already in a comment.
