Abstract

On the basis of Borel resummation, we propose a systematical improvement of the bounce calculus of the quantum bubble nucleation rate. We study a metastable super-renormalizable field theory, (Formula presented)-dimensional, (Formula presented) symmetric (Formula presented) model (Formula presented) with an attractive interaction. The validity of our proposal is tested in (Formula presented) (quantum mechanics) by using the perturbation series of ground state energy to high orders. We also present a result in (Formula presented) based on an explicit calculation of vacuum bubble diagrams to five loop orders.
