A Key feature of the minimal supersymmetric extension of the Standard
Model (MSSM) is the existence of a light Higgs boson, the mass of
which is not a free parameter but an observable that can be predicted
from the theory. Given that the LHC is able to measure the mass of a
light Higgs with very good accuracy, a lot of effort has been put into
a precise theoretical prediction.
We...

Most calculations of quantum correction in the supersymmetric theories are made with the dimensional reduction, which is a modification of the dimensional regularization. However, it is well known that the dimensional reduction is not self-consistent. A consistent regularization, which does not break the supersymmetry is the higher covariant derivative regularization. However, the integrals...

I apply commonly used regularization schemes to a multiloop
calculation to examine the properties of the schemes at higher orders.
I find complete consistency between the conventional dimensional
regularization scheme and dimensional reduction, but I find that the
four-dimensional helicity scheme produces incorrect results at
next-to-next-to-leading order and singular results...

An analytical calculation of a non-planar 2-loop box diagram is presented.
This diagram appears in the computation of higher order corrections to top-
quark pair production and contains one internal massive line. The
corresponding integrals are solved with differential equation and Mellin-Barnes
techniques.

Sector decomposition is a method to extract singularities from
multi-dimensional polynomial parameter integrals in a universal way.
Integrals of this type arise in perturbative higher order calculations
in multi-loop integrals as well as
in phase space integrals involving unresolved massless particles.
The program 'SecDec' will be presented,
which...

We report results of a new regularization technique for infrared (IR) divergent loop integrals using dimensional regularization, where a positive regularization parameter (epsilon, satisfying that the dimension d = 4+2*epsilon) is introduced in the integrand to keep the integral from diverging as long as epsilon > 0.
Based on an asymptotic expansion of the integral we construct a...

Different forms of the generalized Crewther relation in QED and QCD
are discussed. They follow from applyication of the method of OPE to the AVV triangle amplitude in the limit when conformal symmetry is valid and broken by the prosedure of renormalizations in the
various variants of MS scheme, including 't Hooft prescription for
defining beta-function. Special features of the...
