Building bases of loop integrands

Abstract We describe a systematic approach to the construction of loop-integrand bases at arbitrary loop-order, sufficient for the representation of general quantum field theories. We provide a

The simplest massive S-matrix: from minimal coupling to black holes

A bstractIn this paper, we explore the physics of electromagnetically and gravitationally coupled massive higher spin states from the on-shell point of view. Starting with the three-point amplitude,

Tr(F3) supersymmetric form factors and maximal transcendentality. Part I. N$$ \mathcal{N} $$ = 4 super Yang-Mills

A bstractIn the large top-mass limit, Higgs plus multi-gluon amplitudes in QCD can be computed using an effective field theory. This approach turns the computation of such amplitudes into that of

One-loop four-point amplitudes in pure and matter-coupled $ \mathcal{N}\leq 4 $ supergravity

A bstractWe construct all supergravity theories that can be obtained through factorized orbifold projections of $ \mathcal{N}=8 $ supergravity, exposing their double-copy structure, and calculate

Unitarity and On-Shell Recursion Methods for Scattering Amplitudes

This thesis describes some of the recent (and some less recent) developments in calculational techniques for scattering amplitudes in quantum field theory. The focus is on on-shell recursion

Cut-constructible part of QCD amplitudes

Unitarity cuts are widely used in analytic computation of loop amplitudes in gauge theories such as QCD. We expand upon the technique introduced in hep-ph/0503132 to carry out any finite unitarity

Two-Loop Helicity Amplitudes for Gluon-Gluon Scattering in QCD and Supersymmetric Yang-Mills Theory

We present the two-loop helicity amplitudes for the scattering of two gluons into two gluons in QCD, which are relevant for next-to-next-to-leading order corrections to jet production at hadron

Deciphering the Maximal Transcendentality Principle via Bootstrap

: We prove the principle of maximal transcendentality for a class of form factors, including the general two-loop minimal form factors, the two-loop three-point form factor of tr( F 2 ), and the

Classical potential for general spinning bodies

Abstract In this paper we compute the spin-dependent terms of the gravitational potential for general spinning bodies at the leading Newton’s constant G and to all orders in spin. We utilize the

Supergravity and the S Matrix

We discuss supergravity from an $S$-matrix point of view. Kinematical constraints on helicity amplitudes determine the spin-2 and spin-3/2 Born amplitudes almost uniquely, and force Born amplitudes
