    I will try to design the AQFT follow up pages dealing with the "classical" (i.e. non-categorial) content (Haag-Kastler, Wigthman etc.) in an "axiom, definition, theorem, proof, remark"-style with a clear separation of mathematical content and physical interpretation, in the hope that this kind of exposition will appeal to the more mathematically inclined readers. If you are a mathematician, always wanted to know what a quantum field theory is and got frustrated by looking at physics books or attending physics classes, have a look and point out what's missing :-)

    Tim, that sounds very good. Thanks for doing this. This will be a big bonus for the nLab.

    Once our esteemed Todd Trimble asked for QFT literature, and I think we pointed him to Halvorson's article. You might take Todd as your test victim. If he likes the style of the math presentation, then it wil be good.

    (On the other hand, we haven't seen Todd here for a while (?))
