Session: Symbolic computation and elementary particle physics


Aim and Scope

In the research area of elementary particle physics and in the research areas of symbolic computation and of computer algebra in particular, there is the following very strong common interest: How can one simplify expressions represented in terms of multiple-sums and multiple-integrals or in terms coupled difference/differential equations, and how can one extract analytic properties of these expressions by symbolic manipulations? In the last decades very efficient algorithms and tools have been developed that address these problems. Especially in the last few years, new algorithms have been worked out that are inspired by the different techniques of both communities. In this session we will present the newest technologies from both research communities that can be used to evaluate complicated massive Feynman integrals coming from calculations in quantum chromodynamics (QCD). In particular, we aim at pushing forward these very promising interdisciplinary developments.
