Theory of Fields with Nonpolynomial Lagrangians

  • M. K. Volkov

Abstract

This work contains a review of contemporary methods of constructing two-point Green’s functions and particle-scattering amplitudes, applicable in the quantum theory of fields with rapidly increasing spectral functions. These methods must ensure that the theory is finite in all orders of modified perturbation theory and must be such that the S-matrix is unitary. The nonanalyticity in the coupling constants, arising in the use of these methods, indicates that the usual perturbation theory is not applicable here.
