Four-point one-loop nonsupersymmetric pure Yang-Mills amplitudes with the duality between color and kinematics manifest have been constructed in previous work. Here, we extend the discussion to fermions and scalars circulating in the loop with all external gluons. This gives another nontrivial loop-level example showing that the duality between color and kinematics holds in nonsupersymmetric gauge theory. The construction is valid in any spacetime dimension and written in terms of formal…

A bstractWe compute one-loop amplitudes in six-dimensional Yang-Mills theory with half-maximal supersymmetry from first principles: imposing gauge invariance and locality on an ansatz made from
Pure gravities via color-kinematics duality for fundamental matter
A bstractWe give a prescription for the computation of loop-level scattering amplitudes in pure Einstein gravity, and four-dimensional pure supergravities, using the color-kinematics duality.

Conformal Gravity from Gauge Theory
We use the duality between color and kinematics to obtain scattering amplitudes in non-minimal conformal N=0,1,2,4 (super)gravity theories. Generic tree amplitudes can be constructed from a double
Towards one‐loop SYM amplitudes from the pure spinor BRST cohomology
In this paper, we outline a method to compute supersymmetric one‐loop integrands in ten‐dimensional SYM theory. It relies on the constructive interplay between their cubic‐graph organization and BRST
Color-kinematics duality for QCD amplitudes
A bstractWe show that color-kinematics duality is present in tree-level amplitudes of quantum chromodynamics with massive flavored quarks. Starting with the color structure of QCD, we work out a new
Off-shell color-kinematics duality for Chern-Simons
Abstract Many gauge theories possess a hidden duality between color and kinematics in their on-shell scattering amplitudes. An open problem is to formulate an off-shell realization of the duality,

We develop an iterative method for constructing four-dimensional generalized unitarity cuts in N=2 supersymmetric Yang-Mills (SYM) theory coupled to fundamental matter hypermultiplets (N=2 SQCD). For

Abstract We propose a new form of the colour-kinematics/double-copy duality for heavy-mass effective field theories, which we apply to construct compact expressions for tree amplitudes with heavy
