This is the standard notation of the BMHV scheme, the objects with hats

live in D-4 dimensions, without hats in D dimensions and those with bars

in 4 dimensions.

The BMHV scheme is not a magical think to solve your problems with

gamma^5. It also has its drawbacks, such as the breakage of axial Ward

identities, which requires an additional counter-term. In general, I can

tell you that gamma^5 in D-dimensions is always "a mess", so you should

make sure that you understand the scheme (there are many of them!) that

you are using and its implications. FeynCalc just follows the known

prescription to compute traces in this scheme, but it does not solve the

physical problems for you.

When you substitute the results for the PaVe functions, you should

use FCReplaceD[exp,D->4-Epsilon]. This will keep the dimensions of the

Dirac matrices and 4-vectors unchanged. Only after the expansion around

eps=0 you can finally do D->4 to get the 4D result.

As for automatizing the evaluation:

<https://github.com/FeynCalc/feynhelpers>

$LoadAddOns = {"FeynHelpers"};

<< FeynCalc`

...

res = TID[ampF1, k, UsePaVeBasis -> True, ToPaVe -> True]

res2 = PaXEvaluate[res, PaXImplicitPrefactor -> 1/(2 Pi)^D]

DotSimplify[res2 /. D -> 4]

This is the raw (unrenormalized) result (Package-X uses D=4-2Epsilon,

keep that in mind!).

As I wrote before, gamma^5 in the BMHV scheme normally requires a

special counter term that you should work out separately.

Cheers,
