Amplitudes for Fivebranes

Tuesday 13th March 2012 - 11:30 to 12:30

We study the complexified three point amplitudes, the basic building blocks for helicity amplitudes, for various six dimensional supersymmetric theories. In particular, we construct the amplitudes for the (2,0) theory, the worldvolume theory on coincident fivebranes in M theory, and discuss the implications for the dynamics of these mysterious theories.
