Examples

  • QM does have a problem with general relativity (GR) in the sense that GR is nonrenormalizable.

    Are Changes Brewing and How Does the Mind Fit In?

  • The fact that a low energies we have renormalizable theories is i.m.o. just because any nonrenormalizable terms have renormalized to zero when integrating out high energy physics.

    Why 10 or 11?

  • I would agree with anon that there are no valid arguments against a nonrenormalizable theory.

    Why 10 or 11?

  • If it’s nonrenormalizable you don’t have a theory.

    Why 10 or 11?

  • It’s true that a nonrenormalizable theory like a naive approach to quantizing gravity is in some sense not a theory at all, as it never makes predictions about high energies (one must measure an infinite number of constants to fix the theory).
