Nonlocal Quantum Scalar-Field Theory

  • G. V. Efimov

Abstract

The nonlocal theory of the quantized one-component scalar field is considered; the axioms of nonlocal quantum theory are formulated. The class of relativistically invariant generalized functions is considered which can play the role of form factors in constructing perturbation-theory series for the S-matrix. It is shown that for interaction Lagrangians of the LI(x) = gφn(x) (n ≥ 3) type the perturbation-theory series for the S-matrix is finite and satisfies the unitarity and macrocausality conditions in each order of perturbation theory.
