# Dimensional Regularization in Position Space and a Forest Formula for Regularized Epstein-Glaser Renormalization

@article{Keller2010DimensionalRI, title={Dimensional Regularization in Position Space and a Forest Formula for Regularized Epstein-Glaser Renormalization}, author={Kai Johannes Keller}, journal={arXiv: Mathematical Physics}, year={2010} }

The present work contains a consistent formulation of the methods of dimensional regularization (DimReg) and minimal subtraction (MS) in Minkowski position space. The methods are implemented into the framework of perturbative Algebraic Quantum Field Theory (pAQFT). The developed methods are used to solve the Epstein-Glaser recursion for the construction of time-ordered products in all orders of causal perturbation theory. A solution is given in terms of a forest formula in the sense of…
