Single scale Feynman integrals in quantum field theories obey difference or differential equations with respect to their discrete parameter N or continuous parameter x. The analysis of these equations reveals to which order they factorize, which can be different in both cases. The simplest systems are the ones which factorize to first order. For them complete solution algorithms exist. The next interesting level is formed by those cases in which also irreducible second order systems emerge. We…

The SAGEX Review on scattering amplitudes Chapter 3: Mathematical structures in Feynman integrals

Dimensionally-regulated Feynman integrals are a cornerstone of all perturbative computations in quantum field theory. They are known to exhibit a rich mathematical structure, which has led to the

Elliptic Feynman integrals and pure functions

A bstractWe propose a variant of elliptic multiple polylogarithms that have at most logarithmic singularities in all variables and satisfy a differential equation without homogeneous term. We

Elliptic polylogarithms and Feynman parameter integrals

A bstractIn this paper we study the calculation of multiloop Feynman integrals that cannot be expressed in terms of multiple polylogarithms. We show in detail how certain types of two- and

A ( Bounded ) Bestiary of Feynman Integral Calabi-Yau Geometries

We define the rigidity of a Feynman integral to be the smallest dimension over which it is nonpolylogarithmic. We argue that massless Feynman integrals in four dimensions have a rigidity bounded by
