Does anyone take the Wightman axioms seriously? Mainly with respect to quantum gravity or gauge theores, abelian or non-abelian? Anyone doing any research on axiomatization of QFTs in some way?

question with a caveat for those thinking there is a "solid mathematical background" for what we do in physics... lol...

You give me a hard time figuring out if you are seriously interested in or just making fun of and sniping at theoretical physics ...

I am seriously interested and sniping at theoretical physicists (while being one...) now, seriously, these aspects are important and I worked today some hours on this. There is apparently no axiomatization of QFT and the Wightman axioms appear very interesting if one starts quitting them one by one in the attempt to solve BH-"paradoxes"... so, if someone knows something, please answer! And stop assuming I am just spending time here for nothing!

Ok, I see ;-). Maybe you could edit what you told me in the comment unto the question, as you presently have 3 close votes hanging around your neck here ... :-/. I voted to leave open, as I think this is interesting too.
