**Introduction to Algebraic and Constructive Quantum Field Theory**

by John C. Baez, Irving E. Segal, Zhengfang Zhou

**Publisher**: Princeton University Press 1992**ISBN/ASIN**: 0691085463**ISBN-13**: 9780691085463**Number of pages**: 316

**Description**:

The authors present a rigorous treatment of the first principles of the algebraic and analytic core of quantum field theory. Their aim is to correlate modern mathematical theory with the explanation of the observed process of particle production and of particle-wave duality that heuristic quantum field theory provides. The authors address readers interested in fundamental mathematical physics and who have at least the training of an entering graduate student.
