We conclude the rigorous analysis of a previous paper concerning the relation between the (Euclidean) point-splitting approach and the local $\zeta$-function procedure to renormalize physical quantities at one-loop in (Euclidean) QFT in curved spacetime. The stress tensor is now considered in general $D$-dimensional closed manifolds for positive scalar operators $-\Delta + V(x)$. Results obtained in previous works (in the case D=4 and $V(x) =\xi R(x) + m^2$) are rigorously proven and… Expand
