Drawing on Vanhove's contributions to mixed Hodge structures for Feynman integrals in two-di\-men\-sion\-al quantum field theory, we compute two families of determinants whose entries are Bessel moments. Via explicit factorizations of certain Wronskian determinants, we verify two recent conjectures proposed by Broadhurst and Mellit, concerning determinants of arbitrary sizes. With some extensions to our methods, we also relate two more determinants of Broadhurst--Mellit to the logarithmic…

This article reports on some recent progresses in Bessel moments, which represent a class of Feynman diagrams in 2-dimensional quantum field theory. Many challenging mathematical problems on these
Empirical Determinations of Feynman Integrals Using Integer Relation Algorithms
Integer relation algorithms can convert numerical results for Feynman integrals to exact evaluations, when one has reason to suspect the existence of reductions to linear combinations of a basis,
Analytic Structure of all Loop Banana Amplitudes
Using the Gelfand-Kapranov-Zelevinsk\u{\i} system for the primitive cohomology of an infinite series of complete intersection Calabi-Yau manifolds, whose dimension is the loop order minus one, we
Wick rotations, Eichler integrals, and multi-loop Feynman diagrams
Using contour deformations and integrations over modular forms, we compute certain Bessel moments arising from diagrammatic expansions in two-dimensional quantum field theory. We evaluate these
Eta Quotients and Rademacher Sums
Eta quotients on Γ0(6) yield evaluations of sunrise integrals at 2, 3, 4 and 6 loops. At 2 and 3 loops, they provide modular parametrizations of inhomogeneous differential equations whose solutions
Let I0 and K0 be modified Bessel functions of the zeroth order. We use Vanhove’s differential operators for Feynman integrals to derive upper bounds for dimensions of the Q-vector space spanned by

We prove Laporta’s conjecture which relates the 4-loop sunrise diagram in 2-dimensional quantum field theory to Watson’s integral for 4-dimensional hypercubic lattice. We also establish several
Differential equations, recurrence relations, and quadratic constraints for L-loop two-point massive tadpoles and propagators.
Abstract We consider L-loop two-point tadpole (watermelon) integral with arbitrary masses, regularized both dimensionally and analytically. We derive differential equation system and recurrence

Through algebraic manipulations on Wronskian matrices whose entries are reducible to Bessel moments, we present a new analytic proof of the quadratic relations conjectured by Broadhurst and Roberts,


Bessel moments , random walks and Calabi – Yau equations
I prove a theorem that relates moments of Bessel functions to integrals recently considered in the context of random walks. Strong support is found, at 50 digit precision, for a conjecture that had

Using contour deformations and integrations over modular forms, we compute certain Bessel moments arising from diagrammatic expansions in two-dimensional quantum field theory. We evaluate these

It is found that some Cn,k enjoy exact evaluations involving Dirichlet Lfunctions or the Riemann zeta function and almost certainly satisfy certain interindicial relations including discrete k-recurrences.

This work lies at an intersection of three subjects: quantum field theory, algebraic geometry and number theory, in a situation where dialogue between practitioners has revealed rich structure. It

Feynman integrals and critical modular $L$-values
Broadhurst conjectured that the Feynman integral associated to the polynomial corresponding to $t=1$ in the one-parameter family $(1+x_1+x_2+x_3)(1+x_1^{-1}+x_2^{-1}+x_3^{-1})-t$ is expressible in
