The main idea of Berline-Vergne and Atiyan-Bott localisation formulas is that the certain multidimensional
integral can be evaluated exactly by summing up a number of fixed points contributions. I will discuss how
these ideas can be generalized to infinite dimensional setup in the context of quantum field theory. As an
illustration I will discuss briefly the example of 3D Chern-Simons theory.

"Resurgent" semiclassical analysis, a systematic unification of
perturbative and non-perturbative sectors, can be applied to resolve
fundamental problems in quantum theories with degenerate minima.
Expansions about different saddle points are quantitatively related to one
another in a precise manner. Illustrations include double-well and
periodic potentials in QM, and asymptotically free QFTs such as CPN and
Yang-Mills, where this resurgent approach yields a new semiclassical
interpretation of IR renormalons.
