PCT, Spin and Statistics, and All That
Raymond F. Streater & Arthur S. Wightman


PCT, Spin and Statistics, and All That is the classic summary of and introduction to the achievements of Axiomatic Quantum Field Theory. This theory gives precise mathematical responses to questions like: What is a quantized field? What are the physically indispensable attributes of a quantized field? Furthermore, Axiomatic Field Theory shows that a number of physically important predictions of quantum field theory are mathematical consequences of the axioms. Here Raymond Streater and Arthur Wightman treat only results that can be rigorously proved, and these are presented in an elegant style that makes them available to a broad range of physics and theoretical mathematics.

Raymond F. Streater is Professor of Applied Mathematics at King's College London. Arthur S. Wightman is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Princeton University.
