Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology

Description: 

During the last few years the analytic study of scattering amplitudes has flourished due to a vivid interaction between high-energy physics and mathematics. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together leading experts working on novel methods for scattering amplitudes in perturbative gauge theory, gravity theories and string theory, reaching from formal developments to phenomenological applications. The meeting will combine several review presentations with shorter talks to discuss promising developments in this quickly evolving field. We hope that this will help forging new ideas and further boost the field.

The topics include:
• Mathematical structure of scattering amplitudes
• Integrals and integrands of perturbative quantum field theories
• Scattering amplitudes in (super)gravity and their ultraviolet behaviour
• Gauge/gravity dualities, AdS/CFT integrability, Wilson loops and strong-coupling results
• The long-distance singularity structure of gauge-theory amplitudes
• String amplitudes and their implications for field theory
• Developments related to the analytic S-matrix approach
