on the description of perturbative quantum field theory via factorization algebras of observables (see there for more details). Vol. 1 appeared in series New Mathematical Monographs, vol. 31, Cambridge University Press (2016).

The construction proceeds by a refined (spacetime-local) form of deformation quantization via BV-complexes. For renormalization of interaction terms it relies on methods in

Some of the notions in the text are inspired or influenced by
