$\mathcal{A}$-invariance: An axiomatic approach to quantum relativity. (English) Zbl 1161.83353
Summary: The sort of approach claimed by the title of this article is realizable, at least, within the framework of ADG where we do not assume any “spacetime” supplying the dynamics we employ. The latter classical type of argument can naturally be included herewith along with its concomitant impediments that are emanated therefrom and are essentially “absorbed”, technically speaking, by the proposed mechanism. So our approach, being “manifoldless” (thence, no smoothness, in the standard sense) does not contain any such issue, as before, according to the very definitions, being thus “singularities”-free. As a consequence, the equations that one would be able to formulate within the present set-up will be, by the very essence of the matter, already the quantized ones.
