Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Perturbative algebraic quantum field theory: results and perspectives

Presented by Kasia Rejzner, University of York

18 January 2019 13:00 in CM101

In this talk I will briefly review the framework of perturbative algebraic quantum field theory (pAQFT) and explain how it can be applied to the rigorous study of QFT on curved spacetimes. I will argue that it allows one to overcome several conceptual problems and that it gives a new perspective on quantization of gauge theories and potentially also gravity.
