2 3 O ct 2 00 8 Renormalisation of out-of-equilibrium quantum fields

Abstract

We consider the initial value problem and its renormalisation in the framework of the two-particle-irreducible (2PI) effective action. We argue that in the case of appropriately chosen self-consistent initial conditions, the counterterms needed to renormalise the system in equilibrium are also sufficient to renormalise its time evolution. In this way we… (More)
