# 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 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
