Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Gluon scattering amplitudes as a flux-tube partition function

Presented by Benjamin Basso, LPTENS

6 March 2015 13:00 in CM221

In this talk I will explain how to compute gluon scattering
amplitudes at finite coupling in planar N=4 SYM theory, using the duality
with null polygonal Wilson loops, conformal symmetry, and the
integrability of the colour flux tube dynamics. After introducing the main
ideas and results, I will present some applications of this formalism at
strong coupling and discuss the validity of the semiclassical (dual)
string description.
