# Dynamical locality of the nonminimally coupled scalar field and enlarged algebra of Wick polynomials

March 09, 2012

We discuss dynamical locality in two locally covariant quantum field
theories, the nonminimally coupled scalar field and the enlarged algebra of
Wick polynomials. We calculate the relative Cauchy evolution of the enlarged
algebra, before demonstrating that dynamical locality holds in the nonminimally
coupled scalar field theory. We also establish dynamical locality in the
enlarged algebra for the minimally coupled massive case and the conformally
coupled massive case.
