Title: Counting master integrals with parametric annihilators

Abstract: We study shift relations between Feynman integrals via the Mellin
transform through parametric annihilation operators. These contain the
well-known momentum space IBP relations. Applying a result of Loeser
and Sabbah, we conclude that the number of master integrals is
computed by the Euler characteristic of the Lee-Pomeransky polynomial
and we illustrate techniques to compute this number in various
examples from the literature.
