## Abstract

We evaluate a 1-loop, 2-point, massless Feynman integral

*I*_{D,m}(*p*,*q*) relevant for perturbative field theoretic calculations in strongly anisotropic*d*=*D*+*m*dimensional spaces given by the direct sum R^{D}⨁ R^{m}. Our results are valid in the whole convergence region of the integral for generic (noninteger) codimensions*D*and*m*. We obtain series expansions of*I*_{D,m}(*p*,*q*) in terms of powers of the variable*X*:=4*p*^{2}/*q*^{4}, where*p*=|**|,***p**q*=|**|,***q***Є R***p*^{D}, q Є R*, and in terms of generalised hypergeometric functions*^{m}_{3}*F*_{2}(−*X*), when*X*<1. These are subsequently analytically continued to the complementary region*X*≥1. The asymptotic expansion in inverse powers of*X*^{1/2}is derived. The correctness of the results is supported by agreement with previously known special cases and extensive numerical calculations.Original language | English |
