Go game and loop integrals

At  the ACAT workshop held in Tsukuba  in 2003, Jos Vermasseren (NIKHEF, Amsterdam) compared the strategies in the game of Go and in solving equations for loop integrals in his presentation “The rules of physics“. Loop integrals are elements of computations appearing in computing higher order Feynman diagrams, at the kernel of any precise prediction for High Energy Physics (HEP).
