I review my explanation of the irreversibility of the renormalization-group flow in even dimensions greater than two and address new investigations and tests. 

Inequalities for trace anomalies, length of the RG flow, distance between the fixed points and irreversibility

I discuss several issues about the irreversibility of the RG flow and the trace anomalies c, a and a'. First I argue that in quantum field theory: (i) the scheme-invariant area Δa' of the graph of

Inequalities for trace anomalies, length of the RG flow, distance between the fixed points and irreversibility

I discuss several issues about the irreversibility of the RG flow and the trace anomalies c, a and a′. First I argue that in quantum field theory: (i) the scheme-invariant area Δa′ of the graph of

Renormalization and causality violations in classical gravity coupled with quantum matter

I prove that classical gravity coupled with quantized matter can be renormalized with a finite number of independent couplings, plus field redefinitions, without introducing higher-derivative kinetic

Search for flow invariants in even and odd dimensions

A flow invariant in quantum field theory is a quantity that does not depend on the flow connecting the UV and IR conformal fixed points. We study the flow invariance of the most general sum rule with

Supercurrent multiplet correlators at weak and strong coupling

A bstractCorrelators of gauge invariant operators provide useful information on the dynamics, phases and spectra of a quantum field theory. In this paper, we consider four dimensional $ \mathcal{N} $

Recent Developments in Gauge Theories

Almost all theories of fundamental interactions are nowadays based on the gauge concept. Starting with the historical example of quantum electrodynamics, we have been led to the successful unified
