### On shell and off shell simultaneously?

I am considering the following one loop virtual correction in the DIS process: where I have a quark of momentum $p$ coming in, emitting a gluon before interacting with a photon of momentum $q$ to ...

### What justifies the dependence of the coupling renormalization constant in the dimensional regularization regulator?

I wanna clarify some issues about renormalization in the $\bar{MS}$ scheme that I glossed over when I first learnt about this stuff. I am following http://arxiv.org/abs/1411.7853 section 3.1. The ...

### Can I use Pauli-Villars and dimensional regularization together?

There are at least two ways to compute the electron-self energy. You can use Pauli-Villars or dimensional regularization, for example. On Weinberg's book, it's chosen the first method, while on my ...

### Conversion of results between cutoff regularization and dimensional regularization

Generally it would be expected that a renormalizable/physical quantum field theory (QFT) would be regularization independent. For this I would first fix my regularization scheme and then compute stuff....

### $d=2$ pole argument of quadratic divergences in Peskin & Schroeder's book

Q1: My question is, in the context of dimensional regularisation(DREG, in dimension $d$), why do they mention the absence of $d=2$ pole in the gauge theory cases, whereas the $d=2$ pole is not ...

### Dimensionial Regularization (integrating over extra dimensions)

I tried to replicate a result about dimensional regularizations in the review article of Howard Georgi, Effective Field Theory at: people.fas.harvard.edu/~hgeorgi/review.pdf. On page 17, he writes ...

### Renormalizing IR and UV divergences

In lectures on effective field theory the professor wanted to find the correction to the four point vertex in massless $\phi^4$ theory by calculating the diagram, $\hspace{6cm}$ We consider the zero ...
