We present new functional equations in weights 5, 6 and 7 and use them for explicit depth reduction of multiple polylogarithms. These identities generalize the crucial identity $\mathbf{Q}_4$ from the recent work of Goncharov and Rudenko that was used in their proof of the weight 4 case of Zagier's Polylogarithm Conjecture.

Discovering multiple polylogarithm equations via symbolic computations

We discuss how symbolic computations can be used to find functional equations for multiple polylogarithms and prove parts of Goncharov's depth conjecture. We present a custom-built C++ toolkit for

Cluster Superalgebras and Stringy Integrals

Abstract: We take some initial steps to explore physical applications of the cluster superalgebras recently defined by Ovsienko and Shapiro. Our primary example is a fermionic extension of the A2

On the Goncharov depth conjecture and a formula for volumes of orthoschemes

We prove a conjecture of Goncharov, which says that any multiple polylogarithm can be expressed via polylogarithms of depth at most half of the weight. We give an explicit formula for this

Motivic correlators, cluster varieties and Zagier's conjecture on zeta(F,4)

We prove Zagier's conjecture on the value at s=4 of the Dedekind zeta-function of a number field F. For any field F, we define a map from the appropriate pieces of algebraic K-theory of F to the

Identities arising from coproducts on multiple zeta values and multiple polylogarithms

In this thesis we explore identities which can be proven on multiple zeta values using the derivation operators $ D_r $ from Brown's motivic MZV framework. We then explore identities which occur on
