Hexagon Wilson loop = six-gluon MHV amplitude

  title={Hexagon Wilson loop = six-gluon MHV amplitude},
  author={James M. Drummond and Johannes M. Henn and Gregory P. Korchemsky},
We compare the two-loop corrections to the finite part of the light-like hexagon Wilson loop with the recent numerical results for the finite part of the MHV six-gluon amplitude in N = 4 SYM theory [hep-th]) and demonstrate that they coincide within the error bars and, at the same time, they differ from the BDS ansatz by a non-trivial function of (dual) conformal kinematical invariants. This provides strong evidence that the Wilson loop/scattering amplitude duality holds in planar N = 4 SYM… CONTINUE READING
