Multi-loop computations in QCD are notoriously difficult due to the complexity of the integrals involved. Inspired by results from modern number theory and algebraic geometry, a lot of progress has recently been made regarding the computation of multi-loop integrals and scattering amplitudes. I will discuss various new approaches to the computation of loop integrals, and illustrate them on the first computation of a quantity at N3LO in perturbative QCD, the soft-virtual part of the inclusive Higgs-boson cross section in gluon fusion at N3LO.
