Mass renormalization in nonrelativistic quantum electrodynamics

Show Summary Details


This chapter contains an overview on recent results related to the mass renormalization in nonrelativistic quantum electrodynamics. Following this overview, the construction of the renormalization group (RG) based on the smooth Feshbach–Schur map is given and exemplified on a single free nonrelativistic particle coupled to the quantized radiation field.

Keywords: quantum electrodynamics; mass renormalization; spectral perturbation theory; renormalization group
