Hi,
It is just a short-hand notation.
I.e.,
Eps[LorentzIndex[mu], LorentzIndex[ComplexIndex[mu]],Momentum[k1],
Momentum[k2]]
is just
Eps[LorentzIndex[mu], LorentzIndex[ComplexIndex[mu]],
LorentzIndex[dummy1], LorentzIndex[dummy2]] * Pair[Momentum[k1],
LorentzIndex[dummy1]] * Pair[Momentum[k2], LorentzIndex[dummy2]]
