### Event details

I will discuss the implications of a cluster algebraic structure governing the scattering amplitudes of planar N=4 super Yang-Mills theory. Combined with a perturbative bootstrap approach, this structure can be used to construct previously unknown amplitudes with very little additional input. It also reveals a uniform approach for discussing various kinematic all limits of interest.

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..
