Two-loop vertex Feynman diagrams with infrared and collinear divergences are investigated by two independent methods. On the one hand, a method of calculating Feynman diagrams from their small momentum expansion [1] extended to diagrams with zero mass thresholds [2] is applied. On the other hand, a numerical method based on a two-fold integral representation is used [3], [4]. The application of the latter method is possible by using lightcone coordinates in the parallel space. The numerical data obtained with the two methods are in impressive agreement.
