Difference Equations for 5-loop Massive Vacuum Integrals Using Syzygies

In many precision calculations within the Standard Model of particle physics so-called Feynman integrals over loop momenta need to be calculated. Of these integrals, I consider the subclass of fully

Counting to one: reducibility of one- and two-loop amplitudes at the integrand level

A bstractCalculation of amplitudes in perturbative quantum field theory involve large loop integrals. The complexity of those integrals, in combination with the large number of Feynman diagrams, make

Transcendental numbers and the topology of three-loop bubbles

We present a proof that all transcendental numbers that are needed for the calculation of the master integrals for threeloop vacuum Feynman diagrams can be obtained by calculating diagrams with an



Analytic renormalization via continuous space dimension

In recent ycars analytic techniques have been extensively used in the renormalization of finite-order perturbation theory (1). This letter provides yet another analytic approach, which will be shown

High-Energy Behavior in Quantum Field Theory

An attack is made on the problem of determining the asymptotic behavior at high energies and momenta of the Green's functions of quantum field theory, using new mathematical methods from the theory


The renormalized propagation functions DFC and SFC for photons and electrons, respectively, are investigated for momenta much greater than the mass of the electron. It is found that in this region

Asymptotic Series of Quantum Field Theory and Their Summation

The problem of investigation of ultraviolet asymptotics in quantum field theory has met recently with specific difficulties related to the asymptotic character of power expansions of quantum
