We present a self-contained construction of the Euclidean $\Phi^4$ quantum
field theory on $\mathbb{R}^3$ based on PDE arguments. More precisely, we
consider an approximation of the stochastic quantization equation on
$\mathbb{R}^3$ defined on a periodic lattice of mesh size $\varepsilon$ and
side length $M$. We introduce an energy method and prove tightness of the
corresponding Gibbs measures as $\varepsilon \rightarrow 0$, $M \rightarrow
\infty$. We show that every limit point satisfies reflection positivity,
translation invariance and nontriviality (i.e. non-Gaussianity). Our
argument applies to arbitrary positive coupling constant and also to
multicomponent models with $O(N)$ symmetry. Joint work with Massimiliano
