Hi,

after another 9 months, here is the solution. Sorry that I didn't come

up with this immediately.

While working on something similar I remembered your question

and became curious whether your C0 indeed can be rewritten

as a linear combination of simpler integrals. In fact, already

the dependence on the kinematic invariants signals that this should

be possible, since there are not enough parameters for a "real"

triangle. So this triangle simply must be reducible into a tadpole and a

bubble.

One handy trick to achieve this is to use IBPs. We will need FeynHelpers

(github.com/FeynCalc/feynhelpers) for that:

$LoadAddOns = {"FeynHelpers"};

<< FeynCalc`

Written as a loop integral, your C0[0, m^2, m^2/y, 0, 0, m^2]

corresponds to

FCClearScalarProducts[]

SPD[p1] = m^2;

SPD[p2] = 0;

SPD[p1, p2] = 1/2 m^2 - 1/2 m^2/y;

int = 1/(I Pi^2) FAD[k, {k + p1, m}, k + p2]

as one can easily check using ToPaVe:

(C0[0, m^2, m^2/y, 0, 0, m^2] - ToPaVe[int, k]) // PaVeOrder

Now using FIRE we obtain

res = FIREBurn[int, {k}, {p1, p2}] // FDS[#, k] & // ToPaVe[#, k] &

with res being

((-2 + D)*y*(1 + y)*A0[m^2])/(2*(-4 + D)*m^4*(-1 + y)^2) -

(2*(-3 + D)*y*B0[m^2/y, 0, m^2])/((-4 + D)*m^2*(-1 + y)^2)

This is the reduction formula you have been looking for.

Unfortunately, you cannot check this result using Package-X,

since here the Passarino-Veltman functions are multiplied with

1/(D-4) = 1/(2 eps), meaning that to obtain the O(eps^0) term,

the results for A0 and B0 must be expanded up to the order O(eps).

However, Package-X currently cannot not return higher order expansions

in eps.

Fortunately, the functions themselves are simple enough, so one can just

calculate them explicitly up to O(eps), which I did here (the result

for A0 is of course valid to all orders, for B0 I took the liberty

to expand the resulting hypergeometric function with HyperExp up to

O(eps)):

A0sol = -((((-I)*eta + m^2)^(1 - Epsilon)*ScaleMu^(2*Epsilon)*

Gamma[-1 + Epsilon])/Pi^Epsilon);

B0sol = 1/Epsilon + 2 y - EulerGamma y + Log[4] - y Log[4] -

Log[m^2] - Log[\[Pi]] + 2 Log[ScaleMu] - Log[1 - I eta - 1/y] +

y Log[1 - I eta - 1/y] + PolyGamma[0, 3/2] - y PolyGamma[0, 3/2] +

1/6 Epsilon (12 + 3 EulerGamma^2 - \[Pi]^2 +

1/2 (6 EulerGamma^2 + \[Pi]^2) + 12 y -

3 EulerGamma^2 y + \[Pi]^2 y + 6 EulerGamma Log[4] -

6 EulerGamma y Log[4] + 3 Log[4]^2 - 3 y Log[4]^2 +

3 Log[m^2]^2 + 6 Log[m^2] Log[\[Pi]] + 3 Log[\[Pi]]^2 +

6 EulerGamma (Log[m^2] + Log[\[Pi]] - 2 Log[ScaleMu]) -

12 Log[m^2 \[Pi]] Log[ScaleMu] + 12 Log[ScaleMu]^2 -

3 Log[-I eta - 1/y]^2 + 3 y Log[-I eta - 1/y]^2 -

6 EulerGamma Log[1 - I eta - 1/y] +

6 EulerGamma y Log[1 - I eta - 1/y] -

6 Log[4] Log[1 - I eta - 1/y] +

6 y Log[4] Log[1 - I eta - 1/y] +

6 Log[-I eta - 1/y] Log[1 - I eta - 1/y] -

6 y Log[-I eta - 1/y] Log[1 - I eta - 1/y] +

6 EulerGamma PolyGamma[0, 3/2] -

6 EulerGamma y PolyGamma[0, 3/2] + 6 Log[4] PolyGamma[0, 3/2] -

6 y Log[4] PolyGamma[0, 3/2] -

6 Log[1 - I eta - 1/y] PolyGamma[0, 3/2] +

6 y Log[1 - I eta - 1/y] PolyGamma[0, 3/2] +

3 PolyGamma[0, 3/2]^2 - 3 y PolyGamma[0, 3/2]^2 -

6 (-1 + y) Log[-I eta + 1/(1 - y)] (-2 + EulerGamma + Log[4] -

Log[1 - I eta - 1/y] + PolyGamma[0, 3/2]) +

6 (EulerGamma + Log[m^2] + Log[\[Pi]] -

2 Log[ScaleMu]) (EulerGamma (-1 + y) - 2 y - Log[4] +

y Log[4] - (-1 + y) Log[1 - I eta - 1/y] -

PolyGamma[0, 3/2] + y PolyGamma[0, 3/2]) +

6 (-1 + y) PolyLog[2, -I eta + y]);

Notice that here I explicitly introduced the I eta prescription, since

depending on the range of y, the imaginary part will be different.

Package-X results are normally prepared in such a way, that they are

valid for all real values of y and are compatible with Mathematica's

prescription to treat Log[-x] as Log[-x + I eta] when choosing the

branch. But when we calculate things by hand, we have to be more

careful, hence the explicit I eta.

For simplicity, let us consider the case were 0<y<1. Of course,

y could also take other values, but then one has to carefully perform

the analytic continuation for the logs and the polylog.

The corresponding rules for 0<y<1 are given by

rule1 = {

Log[-I eta + m^2] :> Log[m^2],

Log[-I eta + 1/(1 - y)] :> Log[1/(1 - y)],

Log[-I eta - 1/y] :> Log[1/y] - I Pi,

Log[1 - I eta - 1/y] :> Log[1/y - 1] - I Pi,

PolyLog[2, -I eta + y] :> PolyLog[2, y]

};

Now

tmp = Series[

FCReplaceD[res, D -> 4 - 2 Epsilon] /. {A0[m^2] -> A0sol,

B0[m^2/y, 0, m^2] -> B0sol}, {Epsilon, 0, 0}] // Normal;

ourRes = Simplify[tmp /. rule1 /. eta -> 0];

paxRes = PaXEvaluate[C0[0, m^2, m^2/y, 0, 0, m^2]];

diff = Simplify[(ourRes // FunctionExpand // PowerExpand //

Expand) - (paxRes // FunctionExpand // PowerExpand // Expand)] //

SimplifyPolyLog

(* 0 *)

and so we have shown that formula derived using IBPs is indeed correct.

BTW, while working this out, I noticed that there was a bug in

FCAbbreviate (which is required for FIREBurn) that got fixed in the

development version but somehow was not backported into the stable

version. I took care of that now

https://github.com/FeynCalc/feyncalc/commits/hotfix-stable

so please reinstall the stable version of FeynCalc before running the

above code.

Cheers,

Vladyslav
