Abstract

SCARPELLI, A. P. Baêta; BATTISTEL, O. A.  and  NEMES, M. C.. Testing a new strategy to treat divergent amplitudes in QED. Braz. J. Phys. [online]. 1998, vol.28, n.3, pp. 161-168. ISSN 0103-9733.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-97331998000300001.

We analyse a new strategy to manipulate and calculate divergent amplitudes in the context of Quantum Electrodynamics. We compare our results with results of Dimensional Regularization and (one parameter) Pauli-Villars regularization prescriptions and conclude that the present technique allows for an unambiguous determination of the physical content of the divergent amplitude. The results obtained for QED can be easily extended to nonrenormalizable theories where they should be most especially useful.
