We revisit the multi-loop structure of the anomalous-dimension matrix gov- erning the infrared divergences of massless n-particle scattering amplitudes in non-abelian gauge theories. In particular, we derive its most general form at four-loop order, significantly simplifying corresponding expressions given previously. By carefully reevaluating the constraints imposed by two-particle collinear limits, we find that at four-loop order color structures involving dabcd, the symmetrized trace of four group generators, appear along R with cusp logarithms ln[μ2/(−sij)]. As a consequence, naive Casimir scaling of the cusp anomalous dimensions associated with the quark and gluon form factors is violated, while a generalized form of Casimir scaling still holds. Our results provide an important ingredient for resummations of large logarithms in n-jet cross sections with next-to-next-to-next-to leading logarithmic (N3LL) accuracy.
