Recently it has been proposed that gluon scattering amplitudes in gauge theory can be computed from the D-instanton expansion of the topological B-model on 3|4, although only maximally helicity violating (MHV) amplitudes have so far been obtained from a direct B-model calculation. In this note we compute the simplest non-MHV gluon amplitudes (+ + - - - and + - + - -) from the B-model as an integral over the moduli space of degree 2 curves in 3|4 and find perfect agreement with Yang-Mills theory… 

Comments on MHV tree amplitudes for conformal supergravitons topological b-model

We use the twistor-string theory on the B-model of CP 3|4 to compute the maximally helicity violating(MHV) tree amplitudes for conformal supergravitons. The correlator of a bilinear in the affine

On the tree level S matrix of Yang-Mills theory

In this note we further investigate the procedure for computing tree-level amplitudes in Yang-Mills theory from connected instantons in the B-model on P^{3|4}, emphasizing that the problem of

MHV vertices and scattering amplitudes in gauge theory

The generic googly amplitudes in gauge theory are computed by using the Cachazo-Svrcek-Witten approach to perturbative calculation in gauge theory and the results are in agreement with the previously

Inherited twistor-space structure of gravity amplitudes

At tree-level, gravity amplitudes are obtainable directly from gauge theory amplitudes via the Kawai, Lewellen and Tye closed-open string relations. We explain how the unitarity method allows us to

Super Yang-Mills from MHV Vertices

We propose a new, twistor string theory inspired formalism to calculate loop amplitudes in N = 4 super Yang-Mills theory. In this approach, maximal helicity violating (MHV) tree amplitudes of N = 4

Tree Amplitudes in Gauge Theory as Scalar MHV Diagrams

It was proposed in [2] that all tree amplitudes in pure Yang-Mills theory can be constructed from known MHV amplitudes. We apply this approach for calculating tree amplitudes of gauge fields and

Perturbative Gauge Theory as a String Theory in Twistor Space

Perturbative scattering amplitudes in Yang-Mills theory have many unexpected properties, such as holomorphy of the maximally helicity violating amplitudes. To interpret these results, we Fourier

One-loop n-gluon amplitudes with maximal helicity violation via collinear limits.

A conjecture is presented that the corresponding amplitudes where three or more gluon legs are replaced by photons vanish for [ital n][gt]4.

We apply the solution to the recursion relation for the double-off-shell quark current to the problem of computing one loop amplitudes with an arbitrary number of gluons. We are able to compute

Manifestly Lorentz-covariant Feynman rules are given in terms of a ``scalar'' field for each helicity, dramatically simplifying the calculation of amplitudes with massless particles. The spinor
