# The Massless Nelson Hamiltonian and Its Domain

@article{Schmidt2020TheMN, title={The Massless Nelson Hamiltonian and Its Domain}, author={Julian Schmidt}, journal={Springer INdAM Series}, year={2020} }

In the theory of point interactions, one is given a formal expression for a quantum mechanical Hamiltonian. The interaction terms of the Hamiltonian are singular: they can not be rigorously defined as a perturbation (in the operator or form sense) of an unperturbed free operator. A similar situation occurs in Quantum Field Theory, where it is known as the ultraviolet problem. Recently, it was shown that some of the tools used in the context of point interactions can be adapted to solve the…

Extended State Space for describing renormalized Fock spaces in QFT

In quantum field theory (QFT) models, it often seems natural to use, instead of wave functions from Fock space, wave functions that are not square-integrable and have pre-factors involving divergent…

Boundary Conditions that Remove Certain Ultraviolet Divergences

A novel way of removing UV divergences is reviewed: by imposing a type of boundary condition on the wave function that allows for a direct definition of the Hamiltonian without renormalization or limiting procedures.
