There is increasing interest in the study of nonperturbative aspects of three-dimensional quantum field theories (QFT). They appear as holographic dual to theories of (strongly coupled) gravity. For instance, in Holographic Cosmology, the two-point function of the Energy-Momentum Tensor (EMT) of a particular class of three-dimensional QFTs can be mapped into the power spectrum of the Cosmic Microwave Background in the gravitational theory. However, the presence of divergent contact terms poses challenges in extracting a renormalised EMT two-point function on the lattice. Using a $\phi^4$ theory of adjoint scalars valued in the $\mathfrak{su}(N)$ Lie Algebra as a proof-of-concept motivated by Holographic Cosmology, we apply a novel method for filtering out such contact terms by making use of infinitely differentiable "bump" functions which enforce a smooth window that excludes contributions at zero spatial separation. The process effectively removes the local contact terms and allows us to extract the continuum limit behaviour of the renormalised EMT two-point function.
