Works devoted to quantum field theory, elementary particle physics, mathematical physics, statistical mechanics. Investigated the universality of Fermi interaction, the formation of mesic atoms by capture of the meson in the outer orbit with a consequent loss of energy, either by radiation or by the effect of Auger. In quantum field theory known theorem named after him (Wightman theorem). Following NN Bogolyubov suggested (1956) axiomatic approach in quantum field theory. Introduced the concept of superselection.
