Abstract

Abstract The renormalization of a recently proposed field-theoretic model for self-organized criticality is analysed. It is shown hat the field theory is not renormalizable, and thus cannot be used to describe critical behaviour at and below the upper critical dimension. A renormalizable modification of the model with long-range interaction is proposed, and analysed at one-loop order in the framework of field-theoretic renormalization group.
