Nature of problem:
Dimensionally regularised multiloop massless Feynman integrals of a propagator type (so called p-integrals) usually appearing in the tasks of the quantum field theory, and in particular, in high energy physics calculations are computed analytically here.

Solution method:
The algorithm, based on the identities, which connect different p-integrals and are true within the dimensional regularization, is used.

Only scalar p-integrals, i.e. the p-integrals, having no free tensor indices, are admitted. The algorithm used allows to calculate only one- loop, two-loop and three-loop integrals. For the integrals the Laurent expansion in terms of Epsilon is calculated up to and including terms of the order O(Epsilon**3-l), where Epsilon is the deviation of the space- time dimension D from the physical dimension four within the dimensional regularization (D=4-2Epsilon) and 1 is the number of loops. It is sufficient, in particular, to perform four-loop renormalization group calculations.

Running time:
It strongly depends on the topology and complexity of the calculated diagram (see the "Illustrative example").
