A Practical Guide to Scattering Amplitudes: Previously Impossible Calculations Made Trivial

Presented by: 
M Spradlin [Brown]
Monday 2nd April 2012 - 14:00 to 15:30
INI Seminar Room 1
The past several years have seen dramatic progress in our understanding of scattering amplitudes, particularly in supersymmetric gauge and gravity theories. Theoretical advances including the discovery of rich mathematical structure and hidden symmetries have led also to practical advances which in many cases render previously impossible field theory calculations trivial. I will review these and recent related developments on correlation functions and Wilson loops in supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory.
