Abstract

We explore the correspondence between one-loop Feynman integrals and (hyperbolic) simplicial geometry to describe the all-mass case: integrals with generic external and internal masses. Specifically, we focus on n-particle integrals in exactly n space-time dimensions, as these integrals have particularly nice geometric properties and respect a dual conformal symmetry. In four dimensions, we leverage this geometric connection to give a concise dilogarithmic expression for the all-mass box in terms of the Murakami-Yano formula. In five dimensions, we use a generalized Gauss-Bonnet theorem to derive a similar dilogarithmic expression for the all-mass pentagon. We also use the Schläfli formula to write down the symbol of these integrals for all n. Finally, we discuss how the geometry behind these formulas depends on space-time signature, and we gather together many results related to these integrals from the mathematics and physics literature.
