Why another book on the renormalization of field theory? This book aims to contribute to the bridging of the gap between the treatments of renor malization in physics courses and the mathematically rigorous approach It provides a simple but rigorous introduction to perturbative renormalization and in doing so also euips the reader with some basic techniues which are a prereuisite for studying renormalization nonperturbatively Beside these technical issues it also contains a proof of renormalizability of 4 theory in d5 4 dimensions and a discussion of renormalization for systems with a Fermi surface which are realistic models for electrons in metals Like the two courses on which it is based the book is intended to be easily accessible to mathematics and physics students from the third year on and after going through it one should be able to start reading the current literature on the subject in particular on nonperturbative renormalization Chapter 1 provides a brief motivation for studying uantum theory by functional integrals as well as the setup In Chap 2 the techniues of Gaus sian integration and Feynman graph expansions are introduced I then give simple proofs of basic results such as the theorem that the logarithm of the generating functional is a sum of values of connected Feynman graphs In Chap 3 the Wilson renormalization flow is defined and perturbative renormalizability of 4 theory in d5 4 dimensions is proven using a renormal ization group differential euation The Feynman graph expansion of ChapWhy another book on the renormalization of field theory?
