Let me say that this *must* be implemented by an expert. The physics

community barely trusts such codes, and the ones that are barely trusted

(such as ff) have been massively cross checked across many calculations

and papers. That said:

http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/0550-3213(79)90605-9

Here is a more modern reference with some new ideas, and the references

will be useful:

http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-ph/0307113

Bertfried Fauser (on CC list) works on these types of things and might

be an appropriate person to do it.

These calculations are in general plauged by singularities, and the

procedure to remove them lies in physics, not math (renormalization).

The singularities are real, but we understand that they do not affect

physical observables. If it were possible to write general algorithmic

codes, we would do it.

Cheers,
