Borel sum

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

An integral that is defined so as to represent the sum of a divergent series. The concept enables many of the divergent series that occur in physics, such as perturbation series in quantum field theory, to be mathematically well-defined. It is named after the French mathematician Émile Borel (1871–1956).
