GOBIRA, S. R.  and  NEMES, M. C.. Mass scales and their relations in symmetric quantum field theory. Braz. J. Phys. [online]. 2005, vol.35, n.3a, pp.652-656. ISSN 0103-9733.

We illustrate the importance of mass scales and their relation in the specific case of the linear sigma model within the context of its one loop Ward identities. In the calculation it becomes apparent the delicate and essential connection between divergent and finite parts of amplitudes. The examples show how to use mass scales identities which are absolutely necessary to manipulate graphs involving several masses. Furthermore, in the context of the Implicitly Regularization, finite(physical) and divergent (counterterms) parts of the amplitude can and must be written in terms of a single scale which is the renormalization group scale. This facilitates, e.g., obtaining symmetric counterterms and immediately lead to the proper definition of Renormalization Group Constants.
