Asymptotic Perturbation Expansion for the S-matrix in P(⌽)2 Quantum Field Theory Models

  • Jean-Pierre Eckmann
Conference paper
Part of the Acta Physica Austriaca book series (FEWBODY, volume 16/1976)


This talk describes results of a paper with the same title done jointly with H. Epstein and J. Fröhlich. Similar work has been done simultaneously and independently by J. Dimock, K. Osterwalder, and R. Sénéor, and since they also report at this conference I will not describe any of their methods.
