@article{Geyer2017GluonsAG, title={Gluons and gravitons at one loop from ambitwistor strings}, author={Yvonne Geyer and Ricardo Monteiro}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2017}, volume={2018}, pages={1-41} }

A bstractWe present new and explicit formulae for the one-loop integrands of scattering amplitudes in non-supersymmetric gauge theory and gravity, valid for any number of particles. The results exhibit the colour-kinematics duality in gauge theory and the double-copy relation to gravity, in a form that was recently observed in supersymmetric theories. The new formulae are expressed in a particular representation of the loop integrand, with only one quadratic propagator, which arises naturally…
