Quantum fields with a multiplicative structure

  • W. Rühl
  • B. C. Yunn


We define quantum fields (giant fields) on a multidimensional space which contain an infinite set of local fields in Minkowski space. The multiplicative structure for the giant fields implies global expansions for products of the local fields. Conformal symmetry is imposed in order to reduce the number of kinematical variables.

    In general the expansions (6) involve non-local projections of local fields or equivalently local fields on infinitely many sheets of Minkowski space; see Schroer, B., Swieca, J. A.: Phys. Rev. D10, 480 (1974) and Ref. [9]Google Scholar
