In the last year, many interesting developments have been made regarding the computation of two-loop scattering amplitudes in the N=4 Super Yang-Mills theory. These new results do not only provide new insight into the analytical structure of two-loop scattering amplitudes in general, but also reveal hints for an integrable structure in N = 4 SYM.
I will give a brief overview of these new results, and give an account on the first analytic computations of two-loop multi-leg amplitudes.
The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
