# One loop divergencies in the theory of gravitation

@article{Hooft1974OneLD, title={One loop divergencies in the theory of gravitation}, author={Gerard 't Hooft and Martinus J. G. Veltman}, journal={Annales De L Institut Henri Poincare-physique Theorique}, year={1974}, volume={20}, pages={69-94} }

All one-loop divergencies of pure gravity and all those
of gravitation interacting with a scalar particle are calculated. In the case
of pure gravity, no physically relevant divergencies remain; they can all
be absorbed in a field renormalization. In case of gravitation interacting
with scalar particles, divergencies in physical quantities remain, even
when employing the socalled improved energy-momentum tensor.
