 +====== TTP08-26 Two-loop QED hadronic corrections to Bhabha scattering ====== 
 +   <​hidden TTP08-26 ​ Two-loop QED hadronic corrections to Bhabha scattering > heoretical predictions for Bhabha scattering at the two-loop level require the inclusion of 
 + ​hadronic vacuum polarization in the photon propagator. We present predictions for the contri 
 + ​butions from reducible amplitudes which are proportional to the vacuum polarization $\pi(q^2 
 + )$ and from irreducible ones where the vacuum polarization appears in a loop representing ve 
 + rtex or box diagrams. The second case can be treated by using dispersion relations with a we 
 + ight function proportional to the $R$-ratio as measured in electron-positron annihilation in 
 + to hadrons and kernels that can be calculated perturbatively. We present simple analytical f 
 + orms for the kernels and, using two convenient parametrizations for the function $R(s)$, num 
 + ​erical results for the quantities of interest. As a cross check we evaluate the correspondin 
 + g corrections resulting from light and heavy lepton loops and we find perfect agreement with 
 +  previous calculations. For the hadronic correction our result are in good agreement with a 
 + ​previous evaluation.
