In the framework of perturbative algebraic quantum field theory recently developed by Brunetti, Dutsch, and Fredenhagen ( I give a general construction of so-called Euclidean time-ordered products, i.e., algebraic versions of the Schwinger functions, for scalar quantum field theories on spaces of Euclidean signature. This is done by generalizing the recursive construction of time-ordered products by Epstein and Glaser, originally formulated for quantum field… Expand

Perturbative quantum field theory via vertex algebras
In this paper, we explain how perturbative quantum field theory can be formulated in terms of (a version of) vertex algebras. Our starting point is the Wilson–Zimmermann operator product expansionExpand

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 principleExpand
The algebra of Wick polynomials of a scalar field on a Riemannian manifold
On a connected, oriented, smooth Riemannian manifold without boundary we consider a real scalar field whose dynamics is ruled by $E$, a second order elliptic partial differential operator of metricExpand
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 aExpand
Renormalization of massless Feynman amplitudes in configuration space
A systematic study of recursive renormalization of Feynman amplitudes is carried out both in Euclidean and in Minkowski configuration spaces. For a massless quantum field theory (QFT), we use theExpand
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.Expand
3 PREFACE The integrals associated to Feynman graphs must have been a source of frustration for particle physicists ever since. Indeed there is a delicate difference between being able to draw aExpand


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 ofExpand

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 theExpand

Abstract: In order to have well defined rules for the perturbative calculation of quantities of interest in an interacting quantum field theory in curved spacetime, it is necessary to construct WickExpand
The Role of locality in perturbation theory
It is shown how an inductive construction of the renormalized perturbation series of quantum field theory automatically yields, at each order, finite terms satisfying the requirements of locality.Expand
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 ourExpand

No-go result for supersymmetric gauge theories in the causal approach
We consider the massless supersymmetric vector multiplet in a purely quantum framework and propose a power counting formula. Then we prove that the interaction Lagrangian for a masslessExpand
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 difficultiesExpand
Comment to “No‐go result for supersymmetric gauge theories in the causal approach”, by D. R. Grigore and G. Scharf (previous article: Ann. Phys. (Berlin) 17, 864 (2008))
Fulfilling a request of the editor I try to put the aforementioned paper into perspective of relevant results obtained before. In particular I point out that supersymmetry of the S-operator in casesExpand
