Since 2002 Perimeter Institute has been recording seminars, conference talks, and public outreach events using video cameras installed in our lecture theatres. Perimeter now has 7 formal presentation spaces for its many scientific conferences, seminars, workshops and educational outreach activities, all with advanced audio-visual technical capabilities. Recordings of events in these areas are all available On-Demand from this Video Library and on Perimeter Institute Recorded Seminar Archive (PIRSA). PIRSA is a permanent, free, searchable, and citable archive of recorded seminars from relevant bodies in physics. This resource has been partially modelled after Cornell University's arXiv.org.
I will give a brief review on the subject of scattering amplitudes in N=4 super Yang-Mills focussing on their infinite dimensional symmetry structure at tree-level and the fate of these symmetries at loop-level in particular employing a Highs-Regulator for the IR divergencies.
The high-energy behavior of gauge theory amplitudes can be studied using the operator expansion in Wilson lines. I review the next-to-leading order calculations of the high-energy amplitudes in N=4 SYM and QCD.
The observed conservation of Baryon and Lepton number may arise because they are gauge symmetries. Models are discussed where Baryon and lepton number are the charges for a spontaneously broken U(1) gauge symmetries. The best of these models is: (1) free of Landau poles that are near the weak scale, (2) has no flavor changing neutral currents at tree level and (3) contains a dark matter candidate.
