Mr D G Mogull
I work with Dr Donal O'Connell at the Higgs Centre on Colour-Kinematics Duality in Yang-Mills (YM) theory and quantum gravity. These symmetries for tree-level scattering demonstrate how the so-called kinematic numerators obey identical Jacobi identities to colour numerators. Moreover, the "Double Copy" relation allows extraction of gravitational amplitudes using a simple squaring relationship of YM, considerably simplifying the previously cryptic KLT formulae.
We are looking to extend these ideas into the supersymmetric realm, especially that of maximally symmetric D=N=4. We are also investigating how these symmetries relate to the recently proposed "Scattering Equations" (arXiv:1307.2199), and how this structure arises as a result of certain string theories which could allow us to go beyond tree-level. Finally, we are exploring specific instances of BCJ numerators at loop level.
