The required transformation rule may be most easily seen by repeating the steps leading to Eq. 146) in the proof of Noether’s theorem, with one alteration. In the previous section Noether’s theorem was derived subject to the condition that the transformation parameter, a , be independent of spacetime position, xµ . In the present case, however, the transformation parameter, ω, cannot be spacetime independent because the gauge potential transforms into its gradient. 5 Renormalizable interactions 37 under a transformation as in Eq.

We now consider the most general possible theory of several scalars, and show that it always reduces to a set of independent scalars, with potentially different masses. Consider then, a system of N types of spinless particles. Such a system may be described in terms of N real fields, φi (x), with i = 1, . . , N . The most general Lagrangian that is Poincar´e invariant, involves only two time derivatives (stability), and is quadratic in these N fields, is 1 1 L0 = − Aij ∂µ φi ∂ µ φj − Bij φi φj − C 2 2 A sum from 1 to N is implied over repeated indices.

Dimension counting again shows that this is impossible because the free Lagrangian, Eq. 139), implies that fµν has dimensions of M 2 . The lowestdimension interaction possible would then be something like ψγ µν ψfµν which has dimension M 5 and so is not renormalizable. The only remaining possibility then is to build couplings directly from the gauge potential, Aµ (x). This is somewhat delicate, because as we have seen, Aµ (x) does not transform as a four-vector – it is only a four-vector up to a gauge transformation: Aµ → Aµ + ∂µ ω.
