Recent developments in the study of higher dimensional scalar field theories will be reviewed.
Reference will be made to the connections of theories in the same universality class but which live in lower dimensions. At a technical level the analysis requires high loop order results. Issues to do with renormalisation and scheme dependence are discussed and applications to gauge theories will be briefly reviewed.
