algebraic quantum field theory (perturbative, on curved spacetimes, homotopical)
field theory: classical, pre-quantum, quantum, perturbative quantum
Euler-Lagrange form, presymplectic current?
quantum mechanical system, quantum probability
state on a star-algebra, expectation value
collapse of the wave function?/conditional expectation value
quasi-free state?,
canonical commutation relations, Weyl relations?
normal ordered product?
interacting field quantization
A procedure for producing (Lagrangians for) topological quantum field theories from non-topological but supersymmetric QFTs.
The general mechanism is explained a bit at topologically twisted D=4 super Yang-Mills theory.
