The functional equation governing the renormalization flow of fermionic field theories is investigated in $$d$$d dimensions without introducing auxiliary Bose fields on the example of the Gross–Neveu and the Nambu–Jona-Lasinio model. The UV-safe fixed points and the eigenvectors of the renormalization group equations linearized around them are found in the local potential approximation. The results are compared carefully with those obtained with partial bosonization. The results do not receive… 
Scalar mass stability bound in a simple Yukawa-theory from renormalization group equations
Functional renormalization group (FRG) equations are constructed for a simple Yukawa-model with discrete chiral symmetry, including also the effect of a nonzero composite fermion background beyond
Momentum dependence of quantum critical Dirac systems
We analyze fermionic criticality in relativistic $2+1$ dimensional fermion systems using the functional renormalization group (FRG), concentrating on the Gross-Neveu (chiral Ising) and the Thirring
Renormalisation Group determination of scalar mass bounds in a simple Yukawa-model
The scalar mass is determined in the simplest scalar-fermion Yukawa-model in the whole range of stability of the scalar potential. Two versions of the Functional Renormalisation Group (FRG) equations
Asymptotic safety of scalar field theories
We study 3d O(N)symmetric scalar field theories using Polchinski's renormalisation group. In the infinite N limit the model is solved exactly including at strong coupling. At short distances the
Aspects of asymptotic safety for quantum gravity
We study fixed points of quantum gravity with renormalisation group methods, and a procedure to remove certain convergence-limiting poles from the flow. The new setup is tested within the $f(R)$
A functional perspective on emergent supersymmetry
A bstractWe investigate the emergence of N$$ \mathcal{N} $$ = 1 supersymmetry in the long-range behavior of three-dimensional parity-symmetric Yukawa systems. We discuss a renormalization approach
Gentle introduction to rigorous Renormalization Group: a worked fermionic example
Much of our understanding of critical phenomena is based on the notion of Renormalization Group (RG), but the actual determination of its fixed points is usually based on approximations and
Critical Reflections on Asymptotically Safe Gravity
A critical reflection on the state of the art in the asymptotic safety program is provided, specifying and elaborating on open questions of both technical and conceptual nature and pointing out systematic pathways toward answering them.


Local potential approximation for the renormalization group flow of fermionic field theories
The second functional derivative of the effective potential of pure fermionic field theories is rewritten in a factorized form which facilitates the evaluation of the renormalisation flow rate of the
Flow equations without mean field ambiguity
We compare different methods used for non-perturbative calculations in strongly interacting fermionic systems. Mean field theory often shows a basic ambiguity related to the possibility to perform
Analysis of the Wilsonian effective potentials in dynamical chiral symmetry breaking
The nonperturbative renormalization group equation for the Wilsonian effective potential is given in a certain simple approximation scheme in order to study chiral symmetry breaking phenomena
The Exact renormalization group and approximate solutions
We investigate the structure of Polchinski’s formulation of the flow equations for the continuum Wilson effective action. Reinterpretations in terms of I.R. cutoff Green’s functions are given. A
Weak solution of the non-perturbative renormalization group equation to describe dynamical chiral symmetry breaking
ψψoperator andt is the logarithm of the renormalization scale. The DχSB occurs due to the quantum corrections, which means it emerges at some finite tc while integrating the equation with respect to
Renormalization Flow of Bound States
A renormalization group flow equation with a scale-dependent transformation of field variables gives a unified description of fundamental and composite degrees of freedom. In the context of the
Optimized renormalization group flows
We study the optimization of exact renormalization group (ERG) flows. We explain why the convergence of approximate solutions towards the physical theory is optimized by appropriate choices of the
