New Directions in Conventional and Ambitwistor String Theories

Speaker(s): 

The study of scattering amplitudes in field theory connects a wide range of problems, from the mathematics of string perturbation theory to computations related to gravitational waves. I will discuss a couple of topics that keep scattering amplitudes researchers busy, and that motivate an ongoing workshop at PI. First, I will give an overview of recent progress in describing interactions in particle theories in terms of "ambitwistor strings", a new type of field theory model inspired by string theory.
