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…

Dimensional regularization in position space and a Forest Formula for Epstein-Glaser renormalization
We reformulate dimensional regularization as a regularization method in position space and show that it can be used to give a closed expression for the renormalized time-ordered products as solutions
Causal Perturbative Quantum Field Theory
This chapter gives a short self-contained and coordinate-free presentation of causal perturbative quantum field theory in the spirit of the Bogomolov-Epstein-Glaser renormalization method, in the
Interaction and Renormalization of the Scalar Field Theory
In the previous chapter we have covered the quantization of free theories (quadratic actions); now is the time to introduce the interactions. This is where we have to start working perturbatively.
Ricci Flow from the Renormalization of Nonlinear Sigma Models in the Framework of Euclidean Algebraic Quantum Field Theory
The perturbative approach to nonlinear Sigma models and the associated renormalization group flow are discussed within the framework of Euclidean algebraic quantum field theory and of the principle
Fully renormalized stress tensor correlator in flat space
We present a general procedure to renormalize the stress tensor two-point corre- lation function on a Minkowski background in position space. The method is shown in detail for the case of a free

Perturbative Algebraic Quantum Field Theory and the Renormalization Groups
A new formalism for the perturbative construction of algebraic quantum field theory is developed. The formalism allows the treatment of low dimensional theories and of non-polynomial interactions. We
Correlators, Feynman Diagrams, and Quantum No-hair in deSitter Spacetime
We provide a parametric representation for position-space Feynman integrals of a massive, self-interacting scalar field in deSitter spacetime, for an arbitrary graph. The expression is given as a


Epstein-Glaser renormalization and differential renormalization
In the framework of causal perturbation theory by Epstein and Glaser the process of renormalization is precisely equivalent to the extension of time-ordered distributions to coincident points. This
Improved Epstein–Glaser Renormalization in Coordinate Space I. Euclidean Framework
In a series of papers, we investigate the reformulation of Epstein–Glaser renormalization in coordinate space, both in analytic and (Hopf) algebraic terms. This first article deals with analytical
Renormalization in quantum field theory: an improved rigorous method
The perturbative construction of the S-matrix in the causal spacetime approach of Epstein and Glaser may be interpreted as a method of regularization for divergent Feynman diagrams. The results of
Improved Epstein–Glaser renormalization. II. Lorentz invariant framework
The Epstein–Glaser type T-subtraction introduced by one of the authors in a previous paper is extended to the Lorentz invariant framework. The advantage of using our subtraction instead of the
Scale invariance in the causal approach to renormalization theory
The dilation invariance is studied in the framework of Epstein‐Glaser approach to renormalization theory. Some analogues of the Callan‐Symanzik equations are found and they are applied to the scalar
Euclidean Epstein–Glaser renormalization
In the framework of perturbative algebraic quantum field theory recently developed by Brunetti, Dutsch, and Fredenhagen (http://arxiv.org/abs/0901.2038) I give a general construction of so-called
Action Ward Identity and the Stückelberg-Petermann Renormalization Group
A fresh look at the renormalization group (in the sense of Stuckelberg-Petermann) from the point of view of algebraic quantum field theory is given, and it is shown that a consistent definition of
Connes-Kreimer-Epstein-Glaser Renormalization
Causal perturbative renormalization within the recursive Epstein-Glaser scheme involves extending, at each order, time-ordered operator-valued distributions to coinciding points. This is achieved by
A Local (Perturbative) Construction of Observables in Gauge Theories: The Example of QED
Abstract:Interacting fields can be constructed as formal power series in the framework of causal perturbation theory. The local field algebra is obtained without performing the adiabatic limit; the
