All particles in the standard model correspond to some field in a quantum field theory. Our task is to understand how this works, how to describe interactions of these particles using quantum field theory, and how to compute various processes.

This paper is a survey of AQFT, with an orientation towards foundational topics. In addition to covering the basics of the theory, we discuss issues related to nonlocality, the particle concept, the field concept, and inequivalent representations.
