We can tie this to something we measure in the lab by choosing some specificmomenta and spins and evaluating the amplitude.At one loop, the relevant corrections are=+++(b) If the momenta areφ(p)ψ(q1)ψ(q2), the scalar vertex graph is()3Zd4k(2π)4u2i(6k+6p+m)i(6k+m)iu1((k+p)2-m2)(k2-m2)((k-q1)2-m2h)=-i()3Zx,y,zZd4k(2π)4u2(6k+6p+m)(6k+m)u1(k2+ 2xk·p+xp2-2zk·q1+zq21-(x+y)m2-zm2h)3=-i()3Zx,y,zZd4(2π)4u2(6+ (1-x)6p+z6q1+m)(6-x6p+z6q1+m)u1(2+x(1-x)p2+z(1-z)q21+ 2xzp·q1-(x+y)m2-zm2h)3where=k+xp-zq1. This has two pieces: the term in the numerator that’squadratic ingives a logarithmic divergence proportional tou2u1, while every-thing else is some finite dimensionless rational function of the momenta.

So we can think of it as a contribution to an effective Yukawacoupling at momentump2.Thus, we can ignore finite parts of our Feynmangraphs and just focus on the logarithms.Using dim-reg, our graph gives-i()3u2u1Zx,y,zi(4π)d/2d2Γ(2-d2)Γ(3)1Δ2-d21+ finite rational fn.=()316π2u2u1Zx,y,z2-log Δ1+ finite rational fn.where Δ1= (x+y)m2+zm2h-x(1-x)p2-z(1-z)q21-2xzp·q1.(c) Our vertex correction, together with the countertermδλ(which we’ll determinebased on our renormalization condition), combine to give a 1PI three point func-tioniλ+λ316π2Zx,y,zlog Δ1-2+δλuu+rational function of momentaIn anMS scheme, we would just set the countertermδλequal to the divergentpart, and stick aμ2in the logs.
