Multiplicative Renormalization and Hopf Algebras

  title={Multiplicative Renormalization and Hopf Algebras},
  author={Walter D. van Suijlekom},
We derive the existence of Hopf subalgebras generated by Green’s functions in the Hopf algebra of Feynman graphs of a quantum field theory. This means that the coproduct closes on these Green’s functions. It allows us for example to derive Dyson’s formulas in quantum electrodynamics relating the renormalized and bare proper functions via the renormalization constants and the analogous formulas for non-abelian gauge theories. In the latter case, we observe the crucial role played by Slavnov… 

The Structure of Renormalization Hopf Algebras for Gauge Theories I: Representing Feynman Graphs on BV-Algebras

We study the structure of renormalization Hopf algebras of gauge theories. We identify certain Hopf subalgebras in them, whose character groups are semidirect products of invertible formal power

We study the perturbative renormalization of quantum gauge theories in the Hopf algebra setup of Connes and Kreimer. It was shown by van Suijlekom (Commun Math Phys 276:773–798, 2007) that the

Dimensional Regularization in Position Space and a Forest Formula for Regularized Epstein-Glaser Renormalization

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

Notes on Feynman Integrals and Renormalization

I review various aspects of Feynman integrals, regularization and renormalization. Following Bloch, I focus on a linear algebraic approach to the Feynman rules, and I try to bring together several



Renormalization of Gauge Fields: A Hopf Algebra Approach

We study the Connes–Kreimer Hopf algebra of renormalization in the case of gauge theories. We show that the Ward identities and the Slavnov–Taylor identities (in the abelian and non-abelian case

Dyson Schwinger Equations: From Hopf algebras to Number Theory

We consider the structure of renormalizable quantum field theories from the viewpoint of their underlying Hopf algebra structure. We review how to use this Hopf algebra and the ensuing Hochschild

Rota – Baxter Algebras in Renormalization of Perturbative Quantum Field Theory

Recently, the theory of renormalization in perturbative quantum field theory underwent some exciting new developments. Kreimer discovered an organization of Feynman graphs into combinatorial Hopf

Noncommutative renormalization for massless QED

We study the renormalization of massless QED from the point of view of the Hopf algebra discovered by D. Kreimer. For QED, we describe a Hopf algebra of renormalization which is neither commutative

On the Hopf algebra structure of perturbative quantum field theories

We show that the process of renormalization encapsules a Hopf algebra structure in a natural manner. This sheds light on the recently proposed connection between knots and renormalization theory.
