Event Details

The last years have seen tremendous progress in our understanding of the S-matrix of massless quantum field theories. However, this progress is usually confined to two areas: amplitudes not manifesting supersymmetry, or massless theories in 4d. In this talk, I show that the simplicity observed in 4d carries over to 6d superamplitudes, and discuss the resulting formulas for the complete tree-level S-matrix for a variety of massless theories. This amplitude representation is manifestly supersymmetric, and leads to new formulas for super Yang-Mills amplitudes on the Coulomb branch upon dimensional reduction.
