4D scattering equations, Monte Carlo methods, and conformal supergravity

Regular Seminar Joseph Farrow (Durham U.)

room G O Jones 610
abstract:

I will introduce the framework of 4D scattering equations for calculating tree level super amplitudes in a variety of different theories, including Einstein supergravity and super Yang-Mills theory. I will discuss my work on numerical solutions to these equations by Monte Carlo methods, and work with Arthur Lipstein on calculating N=4 conformal supergravity amplitudes in this framework.
