Topics on reflection positivity (continued from week 1)

Relativistic quantum mechanical models are needed in order to be sensitive to physics at sub-nuclear distance scales.  Euclidean formulations of relativistic quantum field theory and relativistic quantum mechanics have a number of advantages.  The key property that leads to a Hilbert space representation of a relativistic quantum theory satisfying a spectral condition is the notion of reflection positivity.  An important goal in formulating models is to have a structure theorem for reflection positive distributions.  In this talk I discuss some progress in this direction.
