Feynman integrals in algebraic geometry

+ 2 like - 0 dislike
1107 views

In quantum field theory, multi-loop Feynman integrals are basic ingredients of calculating high order corrections. Recently, I have come across the paper A Feynman integral via higher normal functions. It seems that Feynman integrals have some relations to algebraic geometry. Since I am physics-oriented, I don't know much about algebraic geometry. Could anyone provide some explanations or expository articles on this topic? Thanks a lot!

This is somewhat of a borderline question for the forum. Generally "tell me about stuff" requests don't do very well. It might make sense to start a meta thread where you could refine your question beforehand.

I think that Ryan has a point, although I'd be very interested in what answers show up!

You should look at the book "Feynman motives" by Marcolli.

@DanPetersen: To me, having seen your MO activity, it would be great to read any comments you could give on the subject.

@user125763 I'm flattered, but I don't think I have much useful to say about this circle of ideas. (And the question is in any case closed!)

There are many resources where information can be found. For example, look at the slides here and the references therein. Also see these notes and perhaps just look at this proceeding. If you have any questions, feel free to comment or email me.
