Amplitudes 09

International workshop on gauge and string amplitudes


OgdenBuildingFront30 March - 3 April 2009
IPPP, Durham, UK

The meeting will focus on new developments in calculational and conceptual aspects of scattering amplitudes. Topics to be discussed include

  • Scattering amplitudes in gauge theory
  • On-shell methods (unitarity, MHV rules, recursion relations)
  • Recent progress in supergravity
  • Amplitudes and polygon Wilson loops
  • Applications of string theory
  • New results for amplitudes in the Standard Model

The last few years have seen some remarkable progress in our understanding of the structure of scattering amplitudes in gauge theories. This workshop will bring together some of the leading experts in the field, with the aim of stimulating in-depth discussions of the results and ideas in this rapidly developing area.
