Consistency of regularization for free scalar fields

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In two dimensional constructive quantum field theory for scalar fields, it is necessary to regularize both the action and the total (Gaussian) volume. In this paper we consider the compatibility of these regularizations.
