  • Speaker: Dr Robin Marzucca (IPPP Durham)
  • Location: Higgs Centre Seminar Room, Room 4305,

Event details

Great progress in the analytic computation of scattering amplitudes was made in recent years utilising our good understanding of polylogarithms. With demands for higher precision calculations including massive states, we are now often confronted with functional dependences that lie beyond the realm of polylogarithms. We investigate the relation between different Riemann surfaces and the connected function spaces, define a useful basis of functions for the computation of scattering amplitudes and will show how to compute the equal-mass banana integral in terms of these functions.
