Gauge Theory Amplitudes, MHV rules and Twistor Space

Regular Seminar Valentin Khoze (Durham)

16:30 IC
room H503

I will give an introduction to the novel method of calculating scattering amplitudes in gauge theory with twistor-space string theory inspired rules. I will show how the method works in simple cases and discuss recent new results for the amplitudes obtained at tree and loop level. I'll discuss some known puzzles, the ways to resolve them, open questions and future directions, including issues in string theory, quantum field theory and phenomenology.
