We present an efficient method to shorten the analytic integration-by-parts (IBP) reduction coefficients of multi-loop Feynman integrals. For our approach, we develop an improved version of Leinartas' multivariate partial fraction algorithm, and provide a modern implementation based on the computer algebra system Singular. Furthermore, we observe that for an integral basis with uniform transcendental (UT) weights, the denominators of IBP reduction coefficients with respect to the UT basis are

With a UT basis, the partial fraction algorithm is more efficient both with respect to its performance and the size reduction. We show that in complicated examples with existence of a UT basis, the IBP reduction coefficients size can be reduced by a factor of as large as ∼ 100. We observe that our algorithm also works well for settings without a UT basis.
