## Abstract

A theoretical prediction for the total width of the positronium decay in QED has been given by B. Kniehl et al. in the form of an expansion in Sommerfeld's fine-structure constant. The coefficients of this expansion are given in the form of two-dimensional definite integrals, with an integrand involving the polylogarithm function. We provide here an analytic expression for the one-loop contribution to this problem.## Download
