[17] Our simplified formalism makesCan infinite constant. This is a trivial divergence, easily rectified by putting aCinto the definition (16). Moreover, with an appropriate renormalization at a late stage in the calculation, it is justifiable to ignore the fact that C = .
[18] According to (38b), the six functions B\(\alpha\)\(\beta\) exist foralmost all\(\eta\);
[19] the exceptional \(\eta\) cause the determinant of the integral in (38b) to vanish at certainxandt. The latter condition defines a set of measure zero with respect to the \(\eta\) integration in (37) and is therefore of no consequence.

[21] Since admissible \(\eta\) vanish at t = t, it follows from (38) that B\(\alpha\)\(\mu\)(x,t)A\(\mu\)(x,t) diverges like (t-t)-1 for admissible \(\eta\) which are analytic intin the neighborhood of t. Thus it is not possible to work directly with B\(\alpha\)\(\mu\)(x,t)A\(\mu\)(x,t).
