SecDec: A general program for sector decomposition. (English) Zbl 1262.81119
Summary: We present a program for the numerical evaluation of multi-dimensional polynomial parameter integrals. Singularities regulated by dimensional regularization are extracted using iterated sector decomposition. The program evaluates the coefficients of a Laurent series in the regularization parameter. It can be applied to multi-loop integrals in Euclidean space as well as other parametric integrals, e.g. phase space integrals.
