A Rigorous Derivation of the Functional Renormalisation Group Equation

  title={A Rigorous Derivation of the Functional Renormalisation Group Equation},
  author={Jobst Ziebell},
The functional renormalisation group equation is derived in a mathematically rigorous fashion in a framework suitable for the Osterwalder-Schrader formulation of quantum field theory. To this end, we devise a very general regularisation scheme and give precise conditions for the involved regulators guaranteeing physical boundary conditions. Furthermore, it is shown how the classical limit is altered by the regularisation process leading to an inevitable breaking of translation invariance. We… Expand


An Introduction to the Nonperturbative Renormalization Group
We give in these notes a short presentation of both the main ideas underlying Wilson’s renormalization group (RG) and their concrete implementation under the form of what is now called theExpand
Exact evolution equation for scalar electrodynamics
Abstract We describe scalar quantum electrodynamics by a gauge-invariant effective average action Γ k . This is obtained by integrating out the quantum fluctuations with “momenta” larger than k in aExpand
A new proof of the existence and nontriviality of the continuum ϕ24 and ϕ34 quantum field theories
We use Schwinger-Dyson equations combined with rigorous “perturbation-theoretic” correlation inequalities to give a new and extremely simple proof of the existence and nontriviality of theExpand
Quantum Gravity and the Functional Renormalization Group: The Road towards Asymptotic Safety
During the past two decades the gravitational asymptotic safety scenario has undergone a major transition from an exotic possibility to a serious contender for a realistic theory of quantum gravity.Expand
Quantum Physics: A Functional Integral Point of View
This book is addressed to one problem and to three audiences. The problem is the mathematical structure of modem physics: statistical physics, quantum mechanics, and quantum fields. The unity ofExpand
Introduction to the Functional RG and Applications to Gauge Theories
This lecture course is intended to fill the gap between graduate courses on quantum field theory and specialized reviews or forefront-research articles on functional renormalization group approachesExpand
Proton Mass Decomposition from the QCD Energy Momentum Tensor.
With fully nonperturbative renormalization (and universal normalization on both quark and gluon), it is found that the quark energy and glue field energy contribute 32(4)(4)% and 36(5)( 4)% respectively in the MS[over ¯] (modified minimal substraction) scheme at μ=2  GeV. Expand
Integration of functions with values in locally convex Suslin spaces
The main purpose of the paper is to give some easily applicable criteria for summability of vector valued functions with respect to scalar measures. One of these is the following: If E is aExpand
Topological Vector Spaces
Preface In the notion of a topological vector space, there is a very nice interplay between the algebraic structure of a vector space and a topology on the space, basically so that the vector spaceExpand
Fatou's Lemma for Weakly Converging Probabilities
Fatou's lemma states under appropriate conditions that the integral of the lower limit of a sequence of functions is not greater than the lower limit of the integrals. This note describes similarExpand
