# Color-kinematics duality for pure Yang-Mills and gravity at one and two loops

@article{Bern2015ColorkinematicsDF, title={Color-kinematics duality for pure Yang-Mills and gravity at one and two loops}, author={Zvi Bern and Scott Davies and Tristan Dennen and Yu-tin Huang and Josh Nohle}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2015}, volume={92}, pages={045041} }

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 amplitude of this theory that makes the duality manifest. Our construction is valid in any dimension. We also describe a duality-satisfying representation for the two-loop four-point amplitude with identical four-dimensional external helicities. We use these results to obtain corresponding gravity…

Abstract
Here we discuss color-kinematics duality for higher-derivative QCD-like amplitudes. We explicitly show that the duality still holds in this case and it can be instrumental in constructing…
