Introduction

Quantum fields and quantization are concepts that come from quantum physics, the most intriguing physical theory developed in the twentieth century. In our work we would like to describe in a coherent and comprehensive way basic aspects of their mathematical structure.

Most of our work is devoted to the simplest kinds of quantum fields and of quantization. We will mostly discuss mathematical aspects of free quantum fields. We will consider the quantization only on linear phase spaces. The reader will see that even within such a restricted scope the subject is rich, involves many concepts and has important applications, both to quantum theory and to pure mathematics.

A distinguished role in our work will be played by representations ...
