We present the new release of pySecDec, a toolbox for the evaluation of dimensionally regulated parameter integrals. The main new features consist of an automated way to perform expansions, based on the geometric approach to the method of expansion by regions, and a new algorithm to efficiently evaluate linear combinations of integrals as needed for the calculation of scattering amplitudes. The other new features are also summarised briefly.

Foundation and generalization of the expansion by regions
A bstractThe “expansion by regions” is a method of asymptotic expansion developed by Beneke and Smirnov in 1997. It expands the integrand according to the scaling prescriptions of a set of regions

Unveiling regions in multi-scale Feynman integrals using singularities and power geometry
We introduce a novel approach for solving the problem of identifying regions in the framework of Method of Regions by considering singularities and the associated Landau equations given a multi-scale
Expansion by regions: revealing potential and Glauber regions automatically
An algorithm and its implementation in the update asy2.m is presented which also reveals potential and Glauber regions automatically and is able to detect potential regions in threshold expansions or Glauberg regions.
Critical points and number of master integrals
A bstractWe consider the question about the number of master integrals for a multiloop Feynman diagram. We show that, for a given set of denominators, this number is totally determined by the
