In science:

In the framework of the perturbation theory, in the limit of removing the regularization, all ”ghosts” are switched off in the sense that the Green’s functions of this theory tend to the Green’s functions of the correct theory, which has no ”ghosts”.
Constructing the light-front QCD Hamiltonian
As long as the Green’s functions are finite so is the partition function containing non-renormalizable operators! The resolution of this apparent paradox is that the rendering of more Green’s functions with the composite operator insertion finite requires more counterterms.
Renormalization of composite operators
The two-time Green’s function method provides a way of mathematical ly extracting from the Green’s function the positions of the poles, i.e., the atomic energy levels ; the procedure handles degenerate and quasidegenerate atomic levels without any special difficulty .
Atomic Energy Levels with QED and Contribution of the Screened Self-Energy
We find that all these divergences affect the Green functions in a trivial way such that in coordinate space the off-shell Green functions are in fact multiplicatively renormalizable.
Off-shell renormalization of the massive QED in the unitary gauge
This gives an explicit relation between the unitary and covariant gauges for the off-shell Green functions in coordinate space.4 Note that even in the unitary gauge the Green functions in coordinate space are free of UV divergences by multiplicative renormalization of the electron fields.
Off-shell renormalization of the massive QED in the unitary gauge
The ST identity is written in terms of the generationg functional of the connected Green functions and that of the 1PI Green functions.
Vacuum condensate of mass dimension 2 as the origin of mass gap and quark confinement (A review)
This formal rescaling by N is carried out at the level of the generating functional Seff [g ] of connected n-point vertices (which are the inverse of n-point Green’s functions) rather than the Green’s functions themselves.
Linear Response and the Validity of the Semi-Classical Approximation in Gravity
The explicit result was also used by Iengo to prove the vanishing of perturbative correction to the R4 term at two loop, in agreement with the indirect argument of Green and Gutperle , Green, Gutperle and Vanhove , and Green and Sethi that the R4 term does not receive perturbative contributions beyond one loop.
Two-Loop Superstrings in Hyperelliptic Language I: the Main Results
By analytic continuation of the single particle Green’s function G (k, τ ) or G (k, iωn ) one can obtain the quasiparticle spectral function A(k, ω ) = − 1 π Im GR (k, ω ) and the tunneling N Pk A(k, ω ), where GR (k, ω ) is the retarded single particle Green’s density of states N (ω ) = 1 function.
On Migdal's theorem and the pseudogap
We can compute the target average of two such Green’s functions expanding both Green’s functions in powers of A0 according to (47) and then resumming the series.
Gluon Radiation and Parton Energy Loss
Obviously, in this case the integral representation of the K¨all´en–Lehmann type must hold for any finite order of perturbative expansion for the Green function.h However, the RG summation leads to violation of such a property of the Green functions (e.g., in the simplest one-loop case the Landau pole appears).
Analytic Invariant Charge in QCD
Second, starting from the exact eigenstates of the static potential, again an exact formal solution is derived in which the Green’s function is represented as the inverse of an infinite tridiagonal matrix, which is the Green’s function analogue of the Floquet state Hamiltonian.
Photon-assisted transport in semiconductor nanostructures
The Green function g(z ) then becomes the Green function of an isolated cluster and the CPT result for the lattice Green function is obtained immediately via Eq. (30) without self-consistency.
Quantum Cluster Theories
In the limit Nc → ∞, the cluster Green function gc becomes the exact Green function of the full system.
Quantum Cluster Theories
With this approximation, the CPT provides a very economical method to calculate the lattice Green function of an infinite size (N → ∞) Hubbard-like model from the Green function (or equivalently self-energy) of an isolated cluster of finite size Nc ≪ N .
