But no matter how clever the word, it is what I would call a dippy process! Having to resort to such hocus-pocus has prevented us from proving the theory of quantum electrodynamics is mathematically self-consistent. .... I suspect that renormalization is not mathematically legitimate."<br /><br />Reference https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/renormalization-a-dippy-process-r-feynman.235191/<br />CFTnoreply@blogger.com
