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:
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
