We revisit a nearly 10-year old controversy on the diphoton decay of the Higgs particle. To a large extent, the controversy turned around the respective merits of the regularization techniques employed. The novel aspect of our approach is that no regularization techniques are brought to bear: we work within the Bogoliubov–Epstein–Glaser scheme of renormalization by extension of distributions. Solving the problem actually required an expansion of this method’s toolkit, furnished in the paper.

It is argued that gauge theories can be quantized by the same method as any other theory, and does not fall prey to the standard philosophical arguments against the significance of ghosts, due to Weingard.

It is known that the elimination of the anomalies in all orders of perturbation theory is an open problem. The constrains given by usual invariance properties and the Wess-Zumino identities are not
