A study of zero-dimensional theories, based on exact results, is presented. First, relying on a simple diagrammatic representation of the theory, equations involving the generating function of all connected Green's functions are constructed. Second, exact solutions of these equations are obtained for several theories. Finally, renormalization is carried out. Based on the anticipated knowledge of the exact solutions the full dependence on the renormalized coupling constant is studied.
