Master integrals for fermionic contributions to massless three-loop form factors

Abstract

In this Letter we continue the calculation of master integrals for massless three-loop form factors by giving analytical results for those integrals which are relevant for the fermionic contributions proportional to View the MathML source, NFdot operatorN, and NF/N. Working in dimensional regularisation, we express one of the integrals in a closed form which is exact to all orders in epsilon (Porson), containing Γ-functions and hypergeometric functions of unit argument. In all other cases we derive multiple Mellin–Barnes representations from which the coefficients of the Laurent expansion in epsilon (Porson) are extracted in an analytical form. To obtain the finite part of the three-loop quark and gluon form factors, all coefficients through transcendentality six in the Riemann ζ-function have to be included.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
