Hi,

I think this is related to the way how Package-X expands B-functions

(using LoopRefineSeries), when the expansion parameter multiplies the

PaVe function. Consider the following code:

<< X`

diff = Table[

{(LoopRefineSeries[

mN^pow PVB[0, 0, mN^2, mN, mPi], {mN, Infinity, 0},

Analytic -> True] // Normal),

Series[

mN^pow (DiscExpand[LoopRefine[PVB[0, 0, mN^2, mN, mPi]]]), {mN,

Infinity, 0}] // Normal}, {pow, 0, 3}]

Simplify[PowerExpand[First[#] - Last[#]]] & /@ diff

% // TableForm

For mN^0 both expansions coincide exactly, but when the power is

different from 0, the difference between the two expansions is finite

and may also involve IR singularities. The case pow=2 is relevant for

your expansion.

In general, the expansion of an already computed integral (where you

implicitly assume mN to be finite) and the expansion on the level of the

Feynman parameters, where you are expanding the Feynman parameter

integral (possibly multiplied by an expansion parameter) first and the

compute it are not always the same.

This is because the expansion may generate new singularities that can be

properly regularized when evaluating Feynman parameter integrals but not

afterwards.

However, the current behavior of Package-X looks a bit strange to me,

so I'm not quite sure if this is intended or a bug.

I added Hiren Patel, the developer of Package-X to the CC of this mail,

so that he may explain us this behavior of his tool.

Cheers,

Vladyslav
