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
Euclidean Configuration Space Renormalization, Residues and Dilation Anomaly
Configuration (x-)space renormalization of Euclidean Feynman amplitudes in a massless quantum field theory is reduced to the study of local extensions of associate homogeneous distributions.
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


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
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
Finite renormalizations in the Epstein Glaser framework and renormalization of theS-matrix ofΦ4-theory
A formula describing finite renormalizations is derived in the Epstein-Glaser formalism and an explicit calculation of finite counterterms in Φ4-theory is performed. The Zimmermann identities and the
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
Causal perturbation theory in terms of retarded products, and a proof of the Action Ward Identity
In the framework of perturbative algebraic quantum field theory a local construction of interacting fields in terms of retarded products is performed, based on earlier work of Steinmann. In our
Remark on Equivalent Formulations for Bogoliubov’s Method of Renormalization
In this note the equivalence between Bogoliubov’s original work [1] and the method of renormalization developed in Lowenstein’s lecture series [2] will be sketched. In Bogoliubov’s approach the

Abstract:We present a perturbative construction of interacting quantum field theories on smooth globally hyperbolic (curved) space-times. We develop a purely local version of the
Proof of the Bogoliubov-Parasiuk theorem on renormalization
A new proof is given that the subtraction rules ofBogoliubov andParasiuk lead to well-defined renormalized Green's distributions. A collection of the counter-terms in “trees” removes the difficulties
Simple approach to renormalization theory
We present a simple argument which shows that all the ultraviolet divergences of quantum field theory may be subtracted by the use of purely local Hermitian counterterms. Using minimal subtraction
