The SAGEX Review on Scattering Amplitudes, Chapter 4: Multi-loop Feynman Integrals

  title={The SAGEX Review on Scattering Amplitudes, Chapter 4: Multi-loop Feynman Integrals},
  author={Johannes Blumlein and Carsten Schneider},
The analytic integration and simplification of multi-loop Feynman integrals to special functions and constants plays an important role to perform higher order perturbative calculations in the Standard Model of elementary particles. In this survey article the most recent and relevant computer algebra and special function algorithms are presented that are currently used or that may play an important role to perform such challenging precision calculations in the future. They are discussed in the…

The SAGEX Review on Scattering Amplitudes

This is an introduction to, and invitation to read, a series of review articles on scattering amplitudes in gauge theory, gravity, and superstring theory. Our aim is to provide an overview of the

Computer Algebra and Hypergeometric Structures for Feynman Integrals

We present recent computer algebra methods that support the calculations of (multivariate) series solutions for (certain coupled systems of partial) linear differential equations. The summand of the



Modern Summation Methods for Loop Integrals in Quantum Field Theory: The Packages Sigma, EvaluateMultiSums and SumProduction

A difference field approach for symbolic summation that enables one to simplify such definite nested sums to indefinite nested sums, in particular, in terms of harmonic sums, generalized harmonic sums or binomial sums.

Scattering Amplitudes, the Tail Effect, and Conservative Binary Dynamics at O(G^{4}).

We complete the calculation of conservative two-body scattering dynamics at fourth post-Minkowskian order, i.e., O(G^{4}) and all orders in velocity, including radiative contributions corresponding

Heavy Flavor Wilson Coefficients in Deep-Inelastic Scattering: Recent Results

We present recent analytic results for the 3-loop corrections to the massive operator matrix element $A_{Qg}^{(3)}$for further color factors. These results have been obtained using the method of

High-precision QED initial state corrections for e+e−→ γ∗/Z∗ annihilation

The precise knowledge of the QED initial state corrections is of instrumental importance in studying high-luminosity measurements in [Formula: see text] annihilation at facilities like LEP, the

Conservative Dynamics of Binary Systems at Fourth Post-Minkowskian Order in the Large-Eccentricity Expansion.

We compute the conservative dynamics of nonspinning binaries at fourth post-Minkowskian order in the large-eccentricity limit, including both potential and radiation-reaction tail effects. This is

Computer Algebra Algorithms for Special Functions in Particle Physics

This work treats iterated integrals of the Poincar\'e and Chen-type, such as harmonic polylogarithms and their generalizations and state an algorithm which rewrites certain types of nested sums into expressions in terms of cyclotomic S-sums.

Feynman integrals in dimensional regularization and extensions of Calabi-Yau motives

We provide a comprehensive summary of concepts from Calabi-Yau motives relevant to the computation of multi-loop Feynman integrals. From this we derive several consequences for multi-loop integrals
