    at renormalization I made the Definition-section have three different subsections, a new one of which is now Definition – Of theories in BV-CS form on Kevin Costello’s apprach. On the other hand, so far this contains mostly just a pointer to his article.

    I started writing a summary of the key steps in Kevin Costello’s discussion of renormalization. At renormalization in the section Of theories in BV-CS form:

    1. The setup

    2. Operator (heat) kernels and propagators

    3. The renormalization group operator

    4. The path integral

    5. Renormalized action

    6. Renormalization

    The text still needs polishing and glue. You shouldn’t look at this right now if you don’t want to see an unfinished writeup. But I have to take a break now and get some dinner.

    I have expanded the Idea-sections at renormalization and perturbative quantum field theory and added more references.

    I am now beginning to spell out a comprehensive account at renormalization.

    To begin with, I added statement and proof that renormalization of time-ordered products is inductively in the arity given by extension of the corresponding distributions to the diagonal: here

    I have been compiling more material (from separate entries that I have been writing, with some glue added) on the rigorous formulation of renormalization in causal perturbation theory; in the section:

    Not done yet, but it is taking shape now.

    I have now spelled out the proof of UV-regularization via counterterms, this prop..

    Hints for the idea this proof were offered DFKR 14, theorem A.1. I have tried to expand that out a little.

    I have considerably further expanded the proof of that prop..

    In particular I made explicit (here) where the Hörmander topology in the definition of UV-cutoff (this def.) really enters.

    Still on that prop. establishing UV-regularization by counterterms:

    Michael Dütsch kindly points out to me by private email that the afterthought of the proof, generalizing from one particular S-matrix to all of them, follows immediately by invoking again the main theorem. I have edited accordingly: paragraphs starting here
