Hi Nikita,

actually I have some doubts that your expression should have no

imaginary part. At least, if I look at the pieces of the imaginary part

that are proportional to u^3:

SelectNotFree[FCE[TrA2B2], Complex];

u3Piece = SelectNotFree[%, u^3] // EpsEvaluate

-512 I u^3 SP[p1, p2] LC[][k1, k2, p, s] +

512 I u^3 SP[p, p2] LC[][k1, k2, p1, s] -

512 I u^3 SP[p, p1] LC[][k1, k2, p2, s] +

512 I u^3 SP[k1, p2] LC[][k2, p, p1, s] -

512 I u^3 SP[k1, p] LC[][k2, p1, p2, s]

Schouten[%]

then it is clear that they do not vanish by the Schouten identity.

However since these are the only terms that contain u^3, I don't think

that they can be cancelled by other terms in the imaginary part.

Cheers,

Vladyslav
