On Twistors and Conformal Field Theories from Six Dimensions
We discuss chiral zero-rest-mass field equations on six-dimensional space-time from a twistorial point of view. Specifically, we present a detailed cohomological analysis, develop both Penrose and
Twistor methods for AdS 5
We consider the application of twistor theory to five-dimensional anti-de Sitter space. The twistor space of AdS5 is the same as the ambitwistor space of the fourdimensional conformal boundary; the
Six-Dimensional Superconformal Field Theories from Principal 3-Bundles over Twistor Space
We construct manifestly superconformal field theories in six dimensions which contain a non-Abelian tensor multiplet. In particular, we show how principal 3-bundles over a suitable twistor space
Ambitwistor strings in six and five dimensions
Ambitwistor strings are chiral (holomorphic) strings whose target is the space of complex null geodesics, ambitwistor space. We introduce twistor representations of ambitwistor space in 6 and 5
Spinor description of D = 5 massless low-spin gauge fields
Spinor description for the curvatures of D = 5 Yang–Mills, Rarita–Schwinger and gravitational fields is elaborated. Restrictions imposed on the curvature spinors by the dynamical equations and
Two-Component Spinorial Formalism Using Quaternions for Six-Dimensional Spacetimes
In this article we construct and discuss several aspects of the two-component spinorial formalism for six-dimensional spacetimes, in which chiral spinors are represented by objects with two
Twistor methods for AdS5
A bstractWe consider the application of twistor theory to five-dimensional anti-de Sitter space. The twistor space of AdS5 is the same as the ambitwistor space of the four-dimensional conformal
Non-Abelian Tensor Multiplet Equations from Twistor Space
We establish a Penrose–Ward transform yielding a bijection between holomorphic principal 2-bundles over a twistor space and non-Abelian self-dual tensor fields on six-dimensional flat space-time.
Lectures on twistor theory
Broadly speaking, twistor theory is a framework for encoding physical information on space-time as geometric data on a complex projective space, known as a twistor space. The relationship between

Covariant representation theory of the Poincaré algebra and some of its extensions
There has been substantial calculational progress in the last few years for gauge theory amplitudes which involve massless four dimensional particles. One of the central ingredients in this has been
Geometrical aspects of spinor and twistor analysis
This work is concerned with two examples of the interactions between differential geometry and analysis, both related to spinors. The first example is the Dirac operator on conformal spin manifolds
Conformal gravity, the Einstein equations and spaces of complex null geodesics
The aim of this work is to give a twistorial characterisation of the field equations of conformal gravity and of Einstein spacetimes. The authors provide strong evidence for a particularly concise
Maximally helicity-violating diagrams in twistor space and the twistor action
MHV diagrams give an efficient Feynman diagram-like formalism for calculating gauge theory scattering amplitudes on momentum space. Although they arise as the Feynman diagrams from an action on

Higher-dimensional twistor transforms using pure spinors
Hughston has shown that projective pure spinors can be used to construct massless solutions in higher dimensions, generalizing the four-dimensional twistor transform of Penrose. In any even

Superconformal Field Theory In Six Dimensions And Supertwistor
We studied the quantum dynamics of six dimensional $\mathcal{N}=(2, 0)$ superconformal field theory (the QNG theory). We developed the spinor technique for six-dimensional quantum field theories. By
