On the Renormalization in Tamm-Dancoff Approximation for One-nucleon Problem, II
— Subtraction of Divergences in the Generalized Tamm-Dancoff Equations

(Received July 17, 1954)
The subtraction of the divergences are carried out in the generalized Tamm-Dancoff equations derived in the previous paper (Part I). The essence of the method is the extension of Fubini's procedure to the arbitrarily higher order approximation. That is, first, we construct the formal solutions which satisfy the equations in question; they contain the infinities and accordingly are quite meaningless. Then, we separate the infinities (including the overlapping divergences) individually at each stage of the construction of these formal solutions. The forms of the nucleon propagation function or the vertex parts which have been made convergent by this method depend on the configurations to which they rafer. However, this seems to be inevitable for the present approximation method, i. e. the reduction of the infinite set of coupled integral equations to the finite one.
