Abstract

This mini-course will review recent developments in our understanding of scattering amplitudes in gauge theories, particularly N=4 SYM in four dimensions. We will discuss a dual theory for these scattering amplitudes associated with contour integrals over Grassmannians, where the remarkable symmetries of the theory are manifest, but space-time and unitarity emerge as secondary concepts.
