After reviewing the essentials of the algebraic approach to QFT, Tomita Takesaki modular theory, and the well known special case of thermalization (with respect to Lorentz boosts) of the Minkowski vacuum on the Rindler wedge, I construct the generators of the modular operators for the forward cone and double cone sub-regions of 2-d Minkowski space for massive free quantum field models.
