As a specific focus, the connection between spin and statistics is examined in this context. A new approach is given, which 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 CSTs . ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: viii, pages: illustrations ; 25 cm. Contents: Introduction and some problems encountered in the construction of a relativistic quantum theory --Relativistic classical and quantum mechanics --Spin, statistics and correlations --Gauge fields and flavor oscillations --The relativistic action at a distance two . The framework of locally covariant quantum field theory (QFT), an axiomatic approach to QFT in curved spacetime (CST), is reviewed. As a specific focus, the connection between spin and statistics is examined in this context.

Loop quantum gravity (LQG) is a theory of quantum gravity attempting to merge quantum mechanics and general relativity, including the incorporation of the matter of the standard model into the framework established for the pure quantum gravity competes with string theory as a candidate for quantum gravity.

According to Albert Einstein, gravity is not a force –. "This book covers recent developments in the covariant formulation of quantum gravity. Developed in the s by Feynman and DeWitt, by the s this approach seemed to lead nowhere due to perturbative non-renormalizability.

We derive an explicit manifestly pdf expression for the most general positive-definite and Lorentz-invariant inner product on the space of solutions of the Klein-Gordon equation.
