A bstractRecently, a perturbative duality between gauge and gravity theories (the double copy) has been discovered, that is believed to hold to all loop orders. In this paper, we examine the relationship between classical solutions of non-Abelian gauge theory and gravity. We propose a general class of gauge theory solutions that double copy to gravity, namely those involving stationary Kerr-Schild metrics. The Schwarzschild and Kerr black holes (plus their higher-dimensional equivalents) emerge… 
The classical double copy for Taub–NUT spacetime
Classical double copy of nonsingular black holes
We apply the classical double copy procedure to a class of regular, non-singular black hole solutions. We give several examples, paying particular attention to a string-theory-corrected black hole
The classical double copy in three spacetime dimensions
Abstract The double copy relates scattering amplitudes in gauge and gravity theories, and has also been extended to classical solutions. In this paper, we study solutions in three spacetime
The double copy: gravity from gluons
Abstract Three of the four fundamental forces in nature are described by so-called gauge theories, which include the effects of both relativity and quantum mechanics. Gravity, on the other hand, is
Generalized Black Holes in 3D Kerr-Schild Double Copy
The double copy of the Coulomb solution in three dimensions is a non-vacuum solution that can be obtained through different matter couplings. It is the static black hole solution of Einstein-Maxwell
The self-dual classical double copy, and the Eguchi-Hanson instanton
A bstractThe double copy is a map from non-abelian gauge theories to gravity, that has been demonstrated both for scattering amplitudes and exact classical solutions. In this study, we reconsider the
Perturbative spacetimes from Yang-Mills theory
A bstractThe double copy relates scattering amplitudes in gauge and gravity theories. In this paper, we expand the scope of the double copy to construct spacetime metrics through a systematic
Gravity as a double copy of gauge theory: from amplitudes to black holes
We discuss the relation between perturbative gauge theory and perturbative gravity, and look at how this relation extends to some exact classical solutions. First, we give an overview of the double
Type D spacetimes and the Weyl double copy
We study the double-copy relation between classical solutions in gauge theory and gravity, focusing on four-dimensional vacuum metrics of algebraic type D, a class that includes several important
Kerr-Schild double copy of the Coulomb solution in three dimensions
While the Kerr-Schild double copy of the Coulomb solution in dimensions higher than three is the Schwarzschild black hole, it is known that it should be a non-vacuum solution in three dimensions. We


BCJ duality and the double copy in the soft limit
A bstractWe examine the structure of infrared singularities in QCD and quantum General Relativity, from the point of view of the recently conjectured double copy property which relates scattering
Perturbative quantum gravity as a double copy of gauge theory.
It is conjecture that this duality persists to all quantum loop orders and can thus be used to obtain multiloop gravity amplitudes easily from gauge-theory ones.
Color-kinematic duality for form factors
A bstractRecently a powerful duality between color and kinematics has been proposed for integrands of scattering amplitudes in quite general gauge theories. In this paper the duality proposal is
Ambitwistor strings and the scattering equations
A bstractWe show that string theories admit chiral infinite tension analogues in which only the massless parts of the spectrum survive. Geometrically they describe holomorphic maps to spaces of
Relationship between gravity and gauge scattering in the high energy limit

Colour-Kinematics duality for one-loop rational amplitudes
A bstractColour-kinematics duality is the conjecture of a group theory-like structure for the kinematic dependence of scattering amplitudes in gauge theory and gravity. This structure has been

We explore consequences of the recently discovered duality between color and kinematics, which states that kinematic numerators in a diagrammatic expansion of gauge-theory amplitudes can be arranged

We provide evidence in favor of the conjectured duality between color and kinematics for the case of nonsupersymmetric pure Yang-Mills amplitudes by constructing a form of the one-loop four-point
