13. VECTOR-BUNDLE VALUED FIELD THEORIES 77
We will assume that I(0,k) = 0 if k 3.
The argument is essentially the same as the argument we gave earlier.
We will perform induction on the set Z≥0 × Z≥0 with the lexicographical
order: (i, k) (r, s) if i r or if i = r and k s.
Suppose, by induction, we have constructed counterterms
I(i,k)(ε)
CT
Oloc(E ,
C∞((0,
∞)ε) A )
for all (i, k) (I, K). The I(i,k)
CT
are supposed, by induction, to have the
following properties:
(1) Each I(i,k)(ε)
CT
is homogeneous of degree k as a function of the field
e E .
(2) Each I(i,k)(ε)
CT
is required to be a finite sum
I(i,k)(ε)
CT
= gr(ε)Φr
where gr(ε)
C∞((0,
∞)ε) and Φr Oloc(E , A ). Each gr(ε) is
required to have a finite order pole at 0; that is, limε→0
εkgr(ε)
= 0
for some k 0.
(3) Recall that A is the space of global sections of a vector bundle A
on X. For any element α A, let αx Ax denote its value at
x X.
We require that, for all L (0, ∞) and all x X, the limit

exists in the topological vector space Hom(E
⊗r,
R) Ax. Here,
Hom(E
⊗r,
R) is given the strong topology (i.e. the topology of uni-
form convergence on bounded subsets).
Now we need to construct the next counterterm I(I,K)(ε).
CT
We would like
to define
I(I,K)(ε)
CT
= Singε W(I,K)

(ε, L),I
(r,s) (I,K)

.
In order to be able to define the singular part like this, we need to know
that
W(I,K)

⎝P
(ε, L),I
(r,s) (I,K)
rI(r,s)CT (ε)⎠

has a nice small ε asymptotic expansion. The required asymptotic expansion
is provided by the following theorem, proved in Appendix 1.
Theorem 13.4.4. For all graphs γ, and all I Oloc(E , A )[[ ]], there
exist local action functionals Φr Oloc(E , A
