We present an on-shell scheme to renormalize the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa (CKM) matrix. It is based on a novel procedure to separate the external-leg mixing corrections into gauge-independent self-mass and gauge-dependent wave function renormalization contributions, and to implement the on-shell renormalization of the former with nondiagonal mass counterterm matrices. Diagonalization of the complete mass matrix leads to an explicit CKM counterterm matrix, which automatically satisfies all the…

Simple on-shell renormalization framework for the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix

We present an explicit on-shell framework to renormalize the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa (CKM) quark mixing matrix at the one-loop level. It is based on a novel procedure to separate the external-leg

Quark-mixing renormalization effects in the determination of the CKM parameters |Vij|

We briefly review existing proposals for the renormalization of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa (CKM) matrix and study the numerical effects of several of them on the $W$-boson hadronic partial decay

Supersymmetric renormalization of the CKM matrix and new constraints on the squark mass matrices

We compute the finite renormalization of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix induced by gluino-squark diagrams in the minimal supersymmetric standard model with nonminimal sources of flavor

Unstable Quantum Fields and Higgs Vacuum

We summarize the progress of the research performed in project B4 of the SFB 676 and highlight the most important results obtained. Starting from the observation that mixing and instability of

Radiative Corrections in Precision Electroweak Physics: a Historical Perspective

The aim of this article is to review the very important role played by radiative corrections in precision electroweak physics, in the framework of both the Fermi Theory of Weak Interactions and the
