The Bern-Carrasco-Johansson color-kinematics duality implements in a powerful and elegant way the relationship between gauge theory and gravity scattering amplitudes from tree level to high loop orders. It is originally formulated for theories with purely-adjoint field content. In this talk, I will discuss the generalization of the BCJ construction to gauge theories with fundamental-representation particles and outline how it can be used to construct amplitudes for pure gravity theories, such as Einstein's general relativity.[
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..
