Inherited twistor-space structure of gravity amplitudes

At tree-level, gravity amplitudes are obtainable directly from gauge theory amplitudes via the Kawai, Lewellen and Tye closed-open string relations. We explain how the unitarity method allows us to

One-loop amplitudes of gluons in supersymmetric QCD

One-loop amplitudes of gluons in supersymmetric Yang-Mills are four-dimensional cut-constructible. This means that they can be determined from their unitarity cuts. We present a new systematic

String-motivated one-loop amplitudes in gauge theories with half-maximal supersymmetry

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

Amplitudes in pure Yang-Mills and MHV Diagrams

We show how to calculate the one-loop scattering amplitude with all gluons of negative helicity in non-supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory using MHV diagrams. We argue that the amplitude with all

A unitarity compatible approach to one-loop amplitudes with massive fermions

A bstractWe explain how one-loop amplitudes with massive fermions can be computed using only on-shell information. We first use the spinor-helicity formalism in six dimensions to perform generalised

One-loop supergravity amplitudes from MHV diagrams

We discuss the calculation of one-loop amplitudes in supergravity using MHV diagrams. In this approach, one-loop amplitudes are expressed as sums of MHV diagrams, which incorporate large numbers of

Twistors, strings and supersymmetric gauge theories

This thesis is concerned with the study of scattering amplitudes in four-dimensional conformal field theories, more particularly the N=4 super-Yang-Mills theory. We study this theory first at tree



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

One-loop n-gluon amplitudes with maximal helicity violation via collinear limits.

A conjecture is presented that the corresponding amplitudes where three or more gluon legs are replaced by photons vanish for [ital n][gt]4.
