### Event details

Title:

Kerr Amplitudes from Higher Spin Theory

Abstract:

Higher-spin theory and massive gauge invariance can be used as input for constraining root-Kerr and Kerr amplitudes, relevant for calculating gravitational observables with spin. Elegant three-point spin-s amplitudes exist for Kerr black holes, however constructing the corresponding four-point Compton amplitudes is an open problem. In this talk, I will discuss the origin of the Kerr three-point amplitudes from a higher-spin theory perspective. Guided by higher-spin constraints and classical-limit analysis, I will propose quantum and classical tree-level Compton amplitudes relevant for root-Kerr and Kerr to all orders in spin.

### About Particle Physics Theory seminars

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..
