Unitarity and locality on patgh integrals

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

my question is this: you know than in feynman path integra, you integrate eiS/hbar along all the fields. you also know that S is real and that it is the integral of local functions (fields and derivatives of fields). you also know that path integral generates an unitary and local theory. the question is, it generates a local theory because the action is an integral of local functions? it generates unitary theory because the exponent involved is purely imaginary? if not, are these facts anyhow related?? thank you very much. i'm sorry for the untidiness.
