    I keep having the need to point to something like mass gap problem. So now I created a stub for it, just so that the links works. Has to be expanded, clearly.

    Urs, have you actually taken a look at the notes by Yablon referenced at the bottom of that page? I don't think their content is at the high technical level that the context implies.

    I only glanced over them, admittedly. Can you suggest a good technical survey? I’d be happy to replace this by something better.

    I've always thought that the Jaffe-Witten article was a good technical survey in itself. Certainly it doesn't go into the details of how many of the results they refer to had been established. But I also don't know of a survey article that actually does that. A more technical survey would essentially have to be a treatise on constructive field theory and I don't know whether there have been any good ones published since Glimm and Jaffe.
