Summary: A discretization scheme provided by the noncommutativity of space is reviewed. In the representation chosen here the radial coordinate is rendered discrete, allowing fields to be put on a lattice in a natural way. Noncommutativity is traded for a controllable type of nonlocality of the field dynamics, which in turn allows fermions to be free of lattice artefacts. Exact, singularity-free solutions are found interpreted, and their continuum limit is well-defined.
