I think they are a tool to calculate the probability of different types of particle decays and particle collision outcomes. TODO Minimal example of that.
At Richard Feynman Quantum Electrodynamics Lecture at University of Auckland (1979), an intuitive explanation of them in termes of sum of products of propagators is given.
