Introduction to renormalization in QFT (part II)In the previous talk we gave an overview of the renormalization procedure in Quantum Field Theory. In this lecture we will demonstrate that abstract procedure on a simple explicit example, the so-called theory of a single real scalar field. We will illustrate the construction of a renormalized state sum using two different regularization schemes, construct the renormalization group equations, and discuss some of their properties.
