From the abstract: To be able to work with particle creation at non-asymptotic times, e.g., to give a transparent and fully deductive treatment for scattering with long-lived unstable particles, it is necessary to have operators for which the infinite-time limits are strong limits. In this paper, I give an improved method of constructing such operators. I use them to give an improved systematic account of scattering theory in relativistic quantum field theories, including a new proof of the reduction formula.
