Hi Maxim,

let me contribute to the resolution of the discrepancy.

The point is that at the end of the computation OneLoop converts

all the D-dimensional 4-vectors and metric tensors to 4-dimensions.

This is also what one normally does when doing computation by hand,

so there is no issue here. However, if the output of OneLoop is not the

full expression that you want to evaluate but just a part of it, one has to

be careful.

In particular, if the output of OneLoop contains metric tensors and you

want to contract it with D-dimensional metric tensors, then you have to

convert your expression back to D-dimensions first. Otherwise, from

contracting g^{mu nu} g_{mu nu} you obtain 4 instead of D, which gives

the rise to the discrepancy that you have been observing.

The correct way of writing the code is

ScalarProduct[q1, q1] = 0;

ScalarProduct[q2, q2] = 0;

ScalarProduct[q3, q3] = 0;

den = FAD[{q, 0}, {q - q1, 0}, {q - q1 - q2, 0}, {q - q1 - q2 - q3,

0}];

ex1 = Contract[(OneLoop[q, den*SP[q, q]*FV[q, mu]*FV[q, nu]] //

ChangeDimension[#, D] &)*MTD[mu, nu]] // PaVeReduce

ex2 = OneLoop[q, den*SP[q, q]^2] // PaVeReduce //

ChangeDimension[#, D] &

and the difference is zero, as it should be.

Cheers,

Vladyslav
