Quark self-energy s.1.1
I would like to calculate a one loop correction to a quark self-energy which is deined as 1PR
part of the fermion propagator:

q

|Σ (,

¡

¡

+ Σ (,

. (1)
Thus the correction has the form:

where
µv

gauge:

sothat

is that no other -structures are generated except

For the sake of completeness I would like to consider a “covariant” and “non covariant” parts sep-
arately. The former one reads as follows:

Renormalization factors s.1.2
There are two ways for further processing of Eqs.(8): either remove regularization after inte-
gration and then expand the result near mass-shell, or irstly expand the integrands near mass-
shell and then remove regularization after integration. These two possibilities are not equal since
the
2

2
limit does not commute with the → 4 limit. The former case is known as “off-shell”
renormalization while the latter is referred to as “on-shell”. The difference is clear for
(1)
integral
(15) which is proportional to:

(1)
(, ) = ‖‖ _

0

u
( + ̄ )
u
, (10)
where = (

2
) ¡

. The result for the regularized integrand in given by Eq. (16). However
if one expands the integrand with respect to before integration, then only a part of Eq. (16)
appears:

(1)
(, ) →
‖‖
1 − 2
2

1
(1, ; 2; ). (11)
It is clear that the last expression corresponds to the contribution of the “hard” region in the
method of expansion by regions, thus it acquires additional “infrared” singularities in compari-
son with the full result (16).
If we consider onlyΣ
c
, the off-shell renormalizationresults inthe standard renormalization
factors:

m

S

̃ , (12)
where ̃ =

S
¡ (4) and
0

, hence. The covariant part of the “on-shell” renormaliza-
tion leads to the factors well known form QED:

It is remarkable the self-energy in the planar gauge Σ
os
= Σ
os
c
+ Σ

yields the result for
os

dif-
ferent from that of the covariant gauge (13):
