  • Article

A procedure for the renormalization of the vacuum field energy in the case where the energy levels are known only numerically is proposed. It requires neither an explicit transcendental equation for determining the levels nor an analytical expression for the asymptotic behavior of these levels. The procedure yields an unambiguous result even when there is a logarithmic divergence in the expression for the vacuum energy.
