Title: The principle of maximal transcendentality and the four-loop collinear anomalous dimension

Abstract

Here, we use the principle of maximal transcendentality and the universal nature of subleading infrared poles to extract the analytic value of the four-loop collinear anomalous dimension in planar N = 4 super-Yang-Mills theory from recent QCD results, obtaining $$\hat{g}$$$(4)\atop{0}$$ =$-$300ζ 7$-$256ζ 2ζ 5$-$384ζ 3ζ 4. This value agrees with a previous numerical result to within 0.2%. It also provides the Regge trajectory, threshold soft anomalous dimension and rapidity anomalous dimension through four loops.
