## Abstract

A non-commutative Feynman graph is a ribbon graph and can be drawn on a genus g 2-surface with a boundary. We formulate a general convergence theorem for the non-commutative Feynman graphs in topological terms and prove it for some classes of diagrams in the scalar field theories. We propose a non-commutative analog of Bogoliubov-Parasiuk's recursive subtraction formula and show that the subtracted graphs from a class Ω_{d} satisfy the conditions of the convergence theorem. For a generic scalar non-commutative quantum field theory on ℝ^{d}, the class Ω_{d} is smaller than the class of all diagrams in the theory. This leaves open the question of perturbative renormalizability of non-commutative field theories. We comment on how the supersymmetry can improve the situation and suggest that a non-commutative analog of Wess-Zumino model is renormalizable.
