Hamilton Colloquium Series, Luis Fernando Alday, Oxford University, "Quantum Scattering Amplitudes in AdS/CFT"

Thu, Feb 20, 2020, 4:00 pm

The AdS/CFT correspondence maps correlators of local operators in a conformal field theory to scattering amplitudes in a gravitational/string theory on curved space-time. The study of such amplitudes is incredibly hard and has mostly been done in a certain classical limit. We show how modern analytic bootstrap techniques allow us to go much beyond that.
