a program performing reduction of Feynman integrals to master integrals.
The C++ version FIRE was presented in 2014. There have been multiple chang

diagram\, a two-loop diagram with two external legs\, with arbitrary mass

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Mathias Schulze (Technische Universität Kaiserslaut
ern)\nKirchhoff (Symanzik) polynomials are obtained from a graph as a sum
of monomials corresponding to (non-)spanning trees. They are of particular
importance in physics in the case of Feynman graphs. One can consider the
m as special cases of matroid (basis) polynomials or of configuration poly
nomials. However the latter two generalizations differ in case of non-regu
lar matroids. This more general point of view has the advantage that the c
lasses of matroids and configurations are stable under additional operatio
ns such as duality and truncation. In addition there are important configu
ration polynomials\, such as the second graph polynomial\, which are not o
f Kirchhoff type. I will give an introduction to the topic and present new
results relating the algebro-geometric structure of the singular locus of
configuration hypersurfaces to the structure of the underlying matroid. T
heir proofs make essential use of matroid theory and\, in particular\, rel
y on duality.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-mainz.de/event/179/contributions/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Yan-Qing Ma (Peking University\, Beijing)\nWe modify
Feynman integrals by introducing an auxiliary parameter \\eta into each F
eynman propagator. The modified Feynman integrals are analytical functions
of \\eta\, and physical Feynman integrals can be obtained by taking \\eta
-> 0^+. Asymptotic expansions of the modified Feynman integrals at \\eta
-> \\infinity can be very easily calculated\, which contain only equal-mas
s vacuum integrals. Due to uniqueness theorem of analytical functions\, th
e asymptotic series determine both values of physical Feynman integrals an
d their linear relations. Based on the asymptotic expansion\, we construct
an algorithm to generate linear relations that can reduce arbitrary multi
-loop Feynman integral to master integrals. Computation complexity of nume
rically solving these linear relations is O(N) when the number of linear e
quations N is large. Our method may overcome the difficulty of IBP method\
, where linear equations are coupled and thus computation complexity is O(
N^3).\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-mainz.de/event/179/contributions/2842/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Toshinori Oaku (Tokyo Woman's Christian University)\
nHolonomic systems are a class of systems of linear (partial or ordinary)
differential equations. One of the most fundamental properties of a holono
mic system is that its solution space is finite-dimensional. \n\nA Feynman
amplitude is the integral of a rational function\, or more generally\, th
e product of complex powers of polynomials. \nHence we can\, in principle\
, apply the following two facts in (computational) $D$-module theory: \n\n
1.\nFor (multivariate) polynomials $f_1\,\\dots\,f_d$ and complex numbers
$\\lambda_1\,\\dots\,\\lambda_d$\, the multi-valued analytic function $f_1
^{\\lambda_1}\\cdots f_d^{\\lambda_d}$ satisfies a holonomic system\, whic
h can be computed algorithmically. \n\n2.\nIf a function satisfies a holon
omic system\, its integral with respect to some of its variables also sati
sfies a holonomic system\, which can be computed algorithmically. \n\nIn t
he integration\, it would also be natural to ragard the integrand as a loc
al cohomology class associated with $f_1\,\\dots\,f_d$\, which roughly cor
responds to the 'residue' of \n$f_1^{\\lambda_1}\\cdots f_d^{\\lambda_d}$
at $\\lambda_1 = \\cdots = \\lambda_d = -1$ (at least in positive mass cas
e for external diagrams). \nThere are also algorithms for computing a holo
nomic system for such a cohomology class. \nHowever\, actual computation\,
especially of integration\, is hard in general because of the complexity.
\nI shall present some worked out examples together with an interpretatio
n based on microlocal analysis.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-mainz.de/event/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Oleg Tarasov (Joint Institute for Nuclear Research\,
Dubna)\nA method for reducing Feynman integrals\, depending on \nseveral
kinematic variables and masses\, to a combination of\nintegrals with fewe
r variables is proposed. The method is based on iterative application of f
unctional equations proposed by the author. The reduction of the one-loop
scalar triangle\, box and pentagon integrals with massless internal propag
ators to simpler integrals will be described.\n\nThe triangle integral dep
ending on three variables is represented as a sum over three integrals dep
ending on two variables. By solving the dimensional recurrence relations f
or these integrals\, an analytic expression in terms of the $_2F_1$ Gauss
hypergeometric function and the logarithmic function was derived.\n\nBy us
ing the functional equations\, the one-loop box integral with \nmassless i
nternal propagators\, which depends on six kinematic variables\, was expre
ssed as a sum of 12 terms. These terms are proportional to the same integr
al depending only on three variables different for each term. For this int
egral with three variables\, an analytic result in terms of the $F_1$ App
ell and $_2F_1$ Gauss hypergeometric functions was derived by solving the
recurrence relation with respect to the spacetime dimension $d$. The redu
ction equations for the box integral with some kinematic variables equal
to zero are considered.\n\nWith the help of three step functional reductio
n the one-loop pentagon integral with massless propagators\, which depends
on 10 variables was reduced to a combination of 60 integrals depending on
4 variables. The on-shell pentagon integral depending on 5 variables was
reduced to 15 integrals depending on 3 variables. For the integrals with 3
variables an analytic result in terms of the $F_3$ Appell and $_2F_1$ Gau
ss hypergeometric functions was obtained.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-mainz

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Hui Luo ()\nScattering amplitudes with spinning part
icles are shown to decompose into multiple copies of simple building block
s to all loop orders\, which can be used to efficiently reduce these ampli
tudes to sums over scalar integrals. For example\, analytic results could
be obtained for the five gluon\, two loop\, and four gluon\, three loop pl
anar scattering amplitudes in pure Yang-Mills theory as well as for leadin
g singularities to even higher orders.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-mainz.de

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Janko Böhm (Technische Universität Kaiserslautern)
\nWith a view toward Feynman Integral Reduction\, I discuss fundamental al
gorithms in commutative algebra as implemented in the open source computer
algebra system Singular. I introduce a highly efficient framework for mas
sively parallel computations in computer algebra\, which combines Singular
with the workflow management system GPI-Space and is based on the idea of
separating coordination and computation. I also give an outlook on the po
tential of cross border methods in the next generation computer algebra sy
stem OSCAR\, which integrates Singular with the systems GAP for group theo
ry\, polymake for polyhedral geometry\, and Antic for number theory. Using
commutative algebra methods\, I address the complete analytic reduction o
f two-loop five-point non-planar hexagon-box integrals with degree-four nu
merators.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-mainz.de/event/179/contributions/2833
