Multi-loop integrals can be evaluated numerically using Mellin-Barnes representations. Here this technique is applied to the calculation of electroweak two-loop correction with closed fermion loops for two observables: the effective weak mixing angle for bottom quarks, sin θbb̄ eff , and the branching ratio of the Z boson into bottom quarks, Rb. Good agreement with a previous result for sin 2 θbb̄ eff is found. The result for Rb is new, and a simple parametrization formula is provided which… Expand
