Non-Renormalizable Theories, Asymptotic Safety
* Idea: Some perturbatively non-renormalizable theories define interacting quantum field theories valid to arbitrarily high momentum scales because of the existence of a non-Gaussian fixed point (Weinberg's asymptotic safety); Examples are the 2 < D < 4 Gross-Neveu model, the non-linear σ-model, the sine-Gordon model and Einstein gravity.
