During a lecture about QFT (http://video.google.it/videoplay?docid=-8230150359736309141&ei=xFWDSNSiDITgjAKz46i3Bg&hl=it" [Broken]) Alain Connes said that Green (in1850) used a mass renormalization to calculate the acceleration of a ball in a liquid, because you can't directly calculate it just using Archimede's Law. I didn't understand It very well. So does anybody know a reference or where to find this kind of calculation?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thank you.
