Nature of problem:
The sector decomposition approach to evaluating Feynman integrals falls apart into the sector decomposition itself, where one has to minimize the number of sectors; the pole resolution and epsilon expansion; and the numerical integration of the resulting expression.
The sector decomposition is based on a new strategy. The sector decomposition, pole resolution and epsilon-expansion are performed in Wolfram Mathematica 6.0 . The data is stored on hard disk via a special program, QLink . The expression for integration is passed to the C-part of the code, that parses the string and performs the integration by the Vegas algorithm . This part of the evaluation is perfectly parallelized on multi-kernel computers.
The complexity of the problem is mostly restricted by the CPU time required to perform the evaluation of the integral, however there is currently a limit of maximum 11 positive indices in the integral; this restriction is to be removed in future versions of the code.
The program works successfully with a single processor, however, it is ready to work in a parallel environment, and the use of multi-kernel processor and multi-processor computers significantly speeds up the calculation.
