- Euclidean reconstruction in quantum field theory: between tempered distributions and Fourier hyperfunctions (1997)
- In this short note on my talk I want to point out the mathematical difficulties that arise in the study of the relation of Wightman and Euclidean quantum field theory, i.e., the relation between the hierarchies of Wightman and Schwinger functions. The two extreme cases where the reconstructed Wightman functions are either tempered distributions - the well-known Osterwalder-Schrader reconstruction - or modified Fourier hyperfunctions are discussed in some detail. Finally, some perpectives towards a classification of Euclidean reconstruction theorems are outlined and preliminary steps in that direction are presented.
