In science:

We checked the method by computing with FIESTA some integrals we had already found with MB and MBresolve.
Radiative-nonrecoil corrections of order alpha^2 (Z alpha)^5 to the Lamb shift
There was one case, integral I32 , where the FIESTA result for the integral with 1/(−2N · k + iǫ) was numerically unstable.
Radiative-nonrecoil corrections of order alpha^2 (Z alpha)^5 to the Lamb shift
We cross-checked this result using a beta version of FIESTA 2 , which did not produce the instabilities we encountered in the former version.
Radiative-nonrecoil corrections of order alpha^2 (Z alpha)^5 to the Lamb shift
To do this, we took one of the integrals we computed with FIESTA and used the IBP method to express it in terms of a similar integral of our choice (same as the original one, but with some propagator(s) raised to different powers) plus other master integrals we already knew.
Radiative-nonrecoil corrections of order alpha^2 (Z alpha)^5 to the Lamb shift
We then computed the new integral with FIESTA and checked if the final result for the Lamb shift (or for individual diagrams) agreed with the calculation in the old basis.
Radiative-nonrecoil corrections of order alpha^2 (Z alpha)^5 to the Lamb shift
