We compute the color-planar and complete light quark non-singlet contributions to the heavy quark form factors in the case of the axialvector, scalar and pseudoscalar currents at three loops in perturbative QCD. We evaluate the master integrals applying a new method based on differential equations for general bases, which is applicable for all first order factorizing systems. [...]

We present the matching relations of the variable flavor number scheme at next-to-leading order, which are of importance to define heavy quark partonic distributions for the use at high energy colliders such as Tevatron and the LHC. The consideration of the two-mass effects due to both charm and bottom quarks, having rather similar masses, are important. [...]

We calculate the two-mass QCD contributions to the massive operator matrix element $A_{gg,Q}$ at $\mathcal{O} (\alpha_s^3)$ in analytic form in Mellin $N$- and $z$-space, maintaining the complete dependence on the heavy quark mass ratio. These terms are important ingredients for the matching relations of the variable flavor number scheme in the presence of two heavy quark flavors, such as charm and bottom. [...]

We perform a global fit of parton distribution functions (PDFs) together with the strong coupling constant $\alpha_s$ and the quark masses $m_c$, $m_b$ and $m_t$ at next-to-leading order (NLO) in QCD. The analysis applies the $\overline{\mathrm{MS}}\, $ renormalization scheme for $\alpha_s$ and all quark masses. [...]

Cyclotomic polylogarithms are reviewed and new results concerning the special constants that occur are presented. This also allows some comments on previous literature results using PSLQ..

We present the two-mass QCD contributions to the pure singlet operator matrix element at three loop order in x-space. These terms are relevant for calculating the structure function $F_2(x,Q^2)$ at $O(\alpha_s^3)$ as well as for the matching relations in the variable flavor number scheme and the heavy quark distribution functions at the same order. [...]

We present the results for heavy quark form factors at two-loop order in perturbative QCD for different currents, namely vector, axial-vector, scalar and pseudo-scalar currents, up to second order in the dimensional regularization parameter. We outline the necessary computational details, ultraviolet renormalization and corresponding universal infrared structure..

Representations are derived for the basic scalar one-loop vertex Feynman integrals as meromorphic functions of the space-time dimension $d$ in terms of (generalized) hypergeometric functions $_2F_1$ and $F_1$. Values at asymptotic or exceptional kinematic points as well as expansions around the singular points at $d=4+2n$, $n$ non-negative integers, may be derived from the representations easily. [...]

We compute the two-loop QCD corrections to the heavy quark form factors in case of the vector, axial-vector, scalar and pseudo-scalar currents up to second order in the dimensional parameter $\epsilon = (4-D)/2$. These terms are required in the renormalization of the higher order corrections to these form factors..
