Renormalization, an overview
Speaker(s): Vincent Rivasseau
Abstract: We review how renormalization, born in quantum field theory has evolved into a rather universal tool to analyze the change of physical laws under scaling. Recent developments in non commutative geometry with hopefully potential applications to the quantization of gravity will be discussed.
