Constrained differential renormalization (CDR) and the constrained version of implicit regularization are two regularization independent techniques that do not rely on dimensional continuation of the space-time. These two methods, which have rather distinct bases, have been successfully applied to several calculations, which show that they can be trusted as practical, symmetry invariant frameworks (gauge and supersymmetry included) in perturbative computations even beyond one-loop order.

(Un)determined finite regularization dependent quantum corrections: the Higgs boson decay into two photons and the two photon scattering examples

We investigate the appearance of arbitrary, regularization dependent parameters introduced by divergent integrals in two a priori finite but superficially divergent amplitudes: the Higgs decay into

Symmetry preserving regularization with a cutoff

A Lorentz and gauge symmetry preserving regularization method is proposed in 4 dimensions based on a momentum cutoff. We use the conditions of gauge invariance or equivalently the freedom to shift


This work presents a systematic implementation of the implicit regularization method that automatically displays the terms to be subtracted by Bogoliubov's recursion formula, and conjecture that momentum routing invariance in the loops is a fundamental symmetry of any Feynman diagram in a renormalizable quantum field theory.

Dimensional regularization vs methods in fixed dimension with and without γ5

A bstractWe study the Lorentz and Dirac algebra, including the antisymmetric ϵ tensor and the γ5 matrix, in implicit gauge-invariant regularization/renormalization methods defined in fixed integer

Implicit regularization beyond one-loop order: gauge field theories

We extend a constrained version of implicit regularization (CIR) beyond one-loop order for gauge field theories. In this framework, the ultraviolet content of the model is displayed in terms of

Ultraviolet and Infrared Divergences in Implicit Regularization: A Consistent Approach

It is shown that the essential steps which rendered Implicit Regularization adequate in the case of ultraviolet divergences have their counterpart for infrared ones, and that a new scale appears, typically an infrared scale which is completely independent of the ultraviolet one.

Naturalness and Theoretical Constraints on the Higgs Boson Mass

Arbitrary regularization dependent parameters in Quantum Field Theory are usually fixed on symmetry or phenomenology grounds. We verify that the quadratically divergent behavior responsible for the

Gauge invariance and the CPT and Lorentz violating induced Chern–Simons-like term in extended QED

The radiative induction of the CPT and Lorentz violating Chern–Simons (CS) term is reassessed. The massless and massive models are studied. Special attention is given to the preservation of gauge



N-Loop Treatment of Overlapping Diagrams by the Implicit Regularization Technique

We show how the Implicit Regularization Technique (IRT) can be used for the perturbative renormalization of a simple field theoretical model generally used as a test theory for new techniques. While

Consistency relations for an implicit n-dimensional regularization scheme

An implicit regularization scheme is extended to be applicable in the $n$-dimensional space-time and it is shown how to use symmetries in order to fix these quantities consistently.


We derive, based only on simple principles of renormalization in coordinate space, closed renormalized amplitudes and renormalization group constants at one- and two-loop orders for scalar field

Differential renormalization of the Wess-Zumino model

We apply the recently developed method of differential renormalization to the Wess-Zumino model. From the explicit calculation of a finite, renormalized effective action, the β-function is computed

Systematic Differential Renormalization to All Orders

Abstract We present a systematic implementation of differential renormalization to all orders in perturbation theory. The method is applied to individual Feynman graphs written in coordinate space.

Implicit regularization beyond one-loop order: scalar field theories

Implicit regularization (IR) has been shown as a useful momentum space tool for perturbative calculations in dimension-specific theories, such as chiral gauge, topological and supersymmetric quantum

Comparing implicit, differential, dimensional, and Bogolubov-Parasiuk-Hepp-Zimmermann renormalization

We compare a momentum space implicit regularization (IR) framework with other renormalization methods which may be applied to dimension specific theories, namely differential renormalization (DfR)

A Comprehensive Coordinate Space Renormalization of Quantum Electrodynamics to Two-Loop Order

We develop a coordinate space renormalization of massless quantum electrodynamics using the powerful method of differential renormalization. Bare one-loop amplitudes are finite at non-coincident
