Celestial operator product expansions (OPEs) arise from the collinear limit of scattering amplitudes and play a vital role in celestial holography. In this paper, we derive the celestial OPEs of massless fields in string theory from the worldsheet. By studying the worldsheet OPEs of vertex operators in worldsheet CFT and further examining their behaviors in the collinear limit, we find that new vertex operators for the massless fields in string theory are generated and become dominant in the… 


Celestial amplitudes and conformal soft theorems
Scattering amplitudes in $d+2$ dimensions can be expressed in terms of a conformal basis, for which the S-matrix behaves as a CFT correlation function on the celestial $d$-sphere. We explain how
Celestial OPE blocks
Starting from the defining two-point and three-point functions of Celestial CFTs, Euclidean integral blocks are constructed for the OPE of scalar primaries. In their integral form they can

Abstract Celestial holography promisingly reformulates the scattering amplitude holographically in terms of celestial conformal field theory living at null infinity. Recently, an
4D scattering amplitudes and asymptotic symmetries from 2D CFT
A bstractWe reformulate the scattering amplitudes of 4D flat space gauge theory and gravity in the language of a 2D CFT on the celestial sphere. The resulting CFT structure exhibits an OPE
Soft limits of Yang-Mills amplitudes and conformal correlators
A bstractWe study tree-level celestial amplitudes in Yang-Mills theory — Mellin transforms of multi-gluon scattering amplitudes that convert them into the correlators of conformal primary fields on

Flat Space Amplitudes and Conformal Symmetry of the Celestial Sphere
The four-dimensional (4D) Lorentz group $SL(2,\mathbb{C})$ acts as the two-dimensional (2D) global conformal group on the celestial sphere at infinity where asymptotic 4D scattering states are
Celestial double copy from the worldsheet
Using the ambitwistor string, we compute tree-level celestial amplitudes for biadjoint scalars, Yang-Mills and gravity to all multiplicities. They are presented in compact CHY-like formulas with
A d-dimensional stress tensor for Minkd+2 gravity
A bstractWe consider the tree-level scattering of massless particles in (d+2)-dimensional asymptotically flat spacetimes. The S$$ \mathcal{S} $$-matrix elements are recast as correlation functions of
Strings on celestial sphere
Abstract We transform superstring scattering amplitudes into the correlation functions of primary conformal fields on two-dimensional celestial sphere. The points on celestial sphere are associated
