Quantum field theory arises from the requirement that the S-matrix is lorentz scalar and obeys the cluster decomposition principle.
I want to know if there are other ways to build invariant S-Matrices that obey the cluster decomposition principle without using quantum field theory. QFT is the most natural way to do it but I'm interested in other possible approaches.
