The L-loop 4-point ladder diagram of massless φ3 theory is finite when all 4 legs are off-shell and is given in terms of polylogarithms with orders ranging from L to 2L. We obtain the exact solution of the linear Dyson-Schwinger equation that sums these ladder diagrams and show that this sum vanishes exponentially fast at strong coupling.
