    Geometric approach to asymptotic expansion of Feynman integrals

    Get PDF
    We present an algorithm that reveals relevant contributions in non-threshold-type asymptotic expansion of Feynman integrals about a small parameter. It is shown that the problem reduces to finding a convex hull of a set of points in a multidimensional vector space.Comment: 6 pages, 2 figure

    How to choose master integrals

    Get PDF
    The standard procedure when evaluating integrals of a given family of Feynman integrals, corresponding to some Feynman graph, is to construct an algorithm which provides the possibility to write any particular integral as a linear combination of so-called master integrals. To do this, public (AIR, FIRE, REDUZE, LiteRed, KIRA) and private codes based on solving integration by parts relations are used. However, the choice of the master integrals provided by these codes is not always optimal. We present an algorithm to improve a given basis of the master integrals, as well as its computer implementation; see also a competitive varian

    Decoupling of heavy quarks in HQET

    Get PDF
    Decoupling of c-quark loops in b-quark HQET is considered. The decoupling coefficients for the HQET heavy-quark field and the heavy-light quark current are calculated with the three-loop accuracy. The last result can be used to improve the accuracy of extracting f_B from HQET lattice simulations (without c-quark loops). The decoupling coefficient for the flavour-nonsinglet QCD current with n antisymmetrized gamma-matrices is also obtained at three loops; the result for the tensor current (n=2) is new.Comment: JHEP3 documentclass; the results in a computer-readable form can be found at http://www-ttp.physik.uni-karlsruhe.de/Progdata/ttp06/ttp06-25/ V2: a few typos corrected, a few minor text improvements, a few references added; V3: several typos in formulas fixe

    An Algorithm to Construct Groebner Bases for Solving Integration by Parts Relations

    Full text link
    This paper is a detailed description of an algorithm based on a generalized Buchberger algorithm for constructing Groebner-type bases associated with polynomials of shift operators. The algorithm is used for calculating Feynman integrals and has proven itself efficient in several complicated cases.Comment: LaTeX, 9 page

    On Epsilon Expansions of Four-loop Non-planar Massless Propagator Diagrams

    Full text link
    We evaluate three typical four-loop non-planar massless propagator diagrams in a Taylor expansion in dimensional regularization parameter ŌĶ=(4‚ąíd)/2\epsilon=(4-d)/2 up to transcendentality weight twelve, using a recently developed method of one of the present coauthors (R.L.). We observe only multiple zeta values in our results.Comment: 3 pages, 1 figure, results unchanged, discussion improved, to appear in European Physical Journal

    On the Resolution of Singularities of Multiple Mellin-Barnes Integrals

    Full text link
    One of the two existing strategies of resolving singularities of multifold Mellin-Barnes integrals in the dimensional regularization parameter, or a parameter of the analytic regularization, is formulated in a modified form. The corresponding algorithm is implemented as a Mathematica code MBresolve.mComment: LaTeX, 10 page
