We prove that an integrated version of the Gurau colored tensor model supplemented with the usual Bosonic propagator on U(1)4 is renormalizable to all orders in perturbation theory. The model is of the type expected for quantization of spacetime in 4D Euclidean gravity and is the first example of a renormalizable model of this kind. Its vertex and propagator are fourstranded like in 4D group field theories, but without gauge averaging on the strands. Surprisingly perhaps, the model is of the φ6 rather than of the φ4 type, since two different φ6type interactions are logdivergent, i.e. marginal in the renormalization group sense. The renormalization proof relies on a multiscale analysis. It identifies all divergent graphs through a power counting theorem. These divergent graphs have internal and external structure of a particular kind called melonic. Melonic graphs dominate the 1/N expansion of colored tensor models and generalize the planar ribbon graphs of matrix models. A new locality principle is established for this category of graphs which allows to renormalize their divergences through counterterms of the form of the bare Lagrangian interactions. The model also has an unexpected anomalous logdivergent ( φ2)2 term, which can be interpreted as the generation of a scalar matter field out of pure gravity.

We prove the convergence of a simplified cluster/Mayer expansion at one energy scale for three spacetime dimensional many Fermion systems. The bounds are uniform in the scale. We iterate them to show that the sum of all diagrams that contain no two or fourlegged subdiagrams converges. Our results are suited to a multiscale construction of the full system.

We prove that the rank 3 analogue of the tensor model defined in [arXiv:1111.4997 [hepth]] is renormalizable at all orders of perturbation. The proof is given in the momentum space. The oneloop γ and βfunctions of the model are also determined. We find that the model with a unique coupling constant for all interactions and a unique wave function renormalization is asymptotically free in the UV.

Quantum field theories on noncommutative Minkowski space are studied in a modelindependent setting by treating the noncommutativity as a deformation of quantum field theories on commutative space. Starting from an arbitrary Wightman theory, we consider special vacuum representations of its WeylWigner deformed counterpart. In such representations, the effect of the noncommutativity on the basic structures of Wightman theory, in particular the covariance, locality and regularity properties of the fields, the structure of the Wightman functions, and the commutative limit, is analyzed. Despite the nonlocal structure introduced by the noncommutativity, the deformed quantum fields can still be localized in certain wedgeshaped regions, and may therefore be used to compute noncommutative corrections to twoparticle Smatrix elements.
