Talk Title: "Direct Extraction of Multiloop Integral Coefficients"

Abstract:

Multiloop amplitudes can be written in a basis of integrals. We show how to compute the coefficients using maximal unitarity cuts and computational algebraic geometry. The coefficients are expressed as products of tree-level amplitudes integrated over multidimensional contours. The method is applied to planar and nonplanar two- and three-loop examples in generic gauge theories. We also discuss generalized cuts of integrals with higher powers of propagators.
