6
Renormalizability Requirement in addition to invariance of theory? 6

7
Renormalizability Requirement in addition to invariance of theory? Not compulsory Irrelevant operators Negligible contributions to physical quantities In 4D, usually non-renormalizable interactions are supposed to be suppressed by a UV cutoff of a theory. 7

Renormalizability Requirement in addition to invariance of theory? Not compulsory Irrelevant operators Negligible contributions to physical quantities In 4D, usually non-renormalizable interactions are supposed to be suppressed by a UV cutoff of a theory. Effective theory with a large cutoff can be predictable without requiring renormalizability Only ? 8 in 4D

9
renormalizable and non-renormalizable interactions coexist. fields as 4D modes can have dim-4 operators In 4D In a theory with compactifed extra dim Simliar to renormalizable terms in 4D If coefficients of other operators are small, such a theory might be predictable with a certain accuracy. 9

11
11 Some attitudes Try to construct a consistent theory to specify all the non-renormalizable interactions Search for rules or orders for possible interactions at each given loop level The coefficients of higher- dimensional operators Unknown Should be eventually determined
