Nature of problem:
Evaluation of next-to-leading order corrections for gluon scattering amplitudes in pure gauge theory.

Solution method:
Purely numerical approach based on tree amplitudes obtained via Berends-Giele recursion combined with unitarity method.

Running in double precision the number of gluons should not exceed 14

Running time:
Depending on the number of external gluons between less than a milli second (4 gluons) up to a 1s (14 gluons) per phase space point.
