We apply the modern Batalin–Vilkovisky quantization techniques of Costello and Gwilliam to noncommutative field theories in the finite-dimensional case of fuzzy spaces. We further develop a generalization of this framework to theories that are equivariant under a triangular Hopf algebra symmetry, which in particular leads to quantizations of finite-dimensional analogues of the field theories proposed recently through the notion of ‘braided L-algebras’. The techniques are illustrated by computing perturbative correlation functions for scalar and Chern–Simons theories on the fuzzy 2-sphere, as well as for braided scalar field theories on the fuzzy 2-torus.
