[en] By use of the threshold expansion we develop an algorithm for analytical evaluation, within dimensional regularization, of arbitrary terms in the expansion of the (two-loop) sunset diagram with general masses m1, m2 and m3 near its threshold, i.e. in any given order in the difference between the external momentum squared and its threshold value, (m1 + m2 + m3)2. In particular, this algorithm includes an explicit recurrence procedure to analytically calculate sunset diagrams with arbitrary integer powers of propagators at the threshold
[en] We discuss the origin of the Wilson polygon-MHV amplitude duality at a perturbative level. It is shown that the duality for the MHV amplitudes at the one-loop level can be proven upon a particular change of variables in Feynman parametrization and with the use of the relation between Feynman integrals at different space-time dimensions. Some generalization of the duality which implies the insertion of a particular vertex operator at the Wilson triangle is found for the 3-point function. We discuss the analytical structure of Wilson loop diagrams and present the corresponding Landau equations. The geometrical interpretation of the loop diagram in terms of the hyperbolic geometry is discussed.
[en] We study the Fredholm minors associated with a Fredholm equation of the second type. We present a couple of new linear recursion relations involving the nth and (n - 1)th minors, whose solution is a representation of the nth minor as an n x n determinant of resolvents. The latter is given a simple interpretation in terms of a path integral over non-interacting fermions. We also provide an explicit formula for the functional derivative of a Fredholm minor of order n with respect to the kernel. Our formula is a linear combination of the nth and the (n ± 1)th minors
[en] Feynman integrals are easily solved if their system of differential equations is in ε-form. In this letter we show by the explicit example of the kite integral family that an ε-form can even be achieved, if the Feynman integrals do not evaluate to multiple polylogarithms. The ε-form is obtained by a (non-algebraic) change of basis for the master integrals.
[en] Asymptotic behaviour of the scattering amplitude for two scalar particle at high energy and fixed momentum transfers is reconsidered in quantum field theory. In the framework of the quasipotential approach and the modified perturbation theory a systematic scheme of finding the leading eikonal scattering amplitudes and its corrections is developed and constructed. The connection between the solutions obtained by quasipotential and functional approaches is also discussed. (author)
