 +   <​hidden TTP04-17 ​ An algorithm for the high-energy expansion of multi-loop diagrams to next-to-leading logarithmic accuracy > We present an algorithm to compute arbitrary multi-loop massive Feynman diagrams in the region where the typical energy scale \sqrt{s} is much larger than the typical mass scale M, i.e. s>>​M^2,​ while various different energy and mass parameters may be present. In this region we perform an asymptotic expansion and, using sector decomposition,​ we extract the leading contributions resulting from ultraviolet and mass singularities,​ which consist of large logarithms log(s/M^2) and 1/\epsilon poles in D=4-2\epsilon dimensions. To next-to-leading accuracy, at L loops all terms of the form \alpha^L \epsilon^{-k} log^j(s/​M^2) with j+k=2L and j+k=2L-1 are taken into account. This algorithm permits, in particular, to compute higher-order next-to-leading logarithmic electroweak corrections for processes involving various kinematical invariants of the order of hundreds of GeV and masses M_W \sim M_Z \sim M_H \sim M_t of the order of the electroweak scale, in the approximation where the masses of the light fermions are neglected.
