A bstractMason and Skinner recently constructed a chiral infinite tension limit of the Ramond-Neveu-Schwarz superstring which was shown to compute the Cachazo-He-Yuan formulae for tree-level d = 10 Yang-Mills amplitudes and the NS-NS sector of tree-level d = 10 supergravity amplitudes. In this letter, their chiral infinite tension limit is generalized to the pure spinor superstring which computes a d = 10 superspace version of the Cachazo-He-Yuan formulae for tree-level d = 10 super-Yang-Mills… 

N-point tree-level scattering amplitude in the new Berkovits’ string

A bstractWe give a proof that the pure spinor superstring theory in a novel infinite tension limit, as was discussed recently by Berkovits, reproduces the tree-level scattering amplitudes of the

Scattering equations, supergravity integrands, and pure spinors

A bstractThe tree-level S-matrix of type II supergravity can be computed in scattering equation form by correlators in a worldsheet theory analogous to a chiral, infinite tension limit of the pure

Fermionic one-loop amplitudes of the RNS superstring

A bstractWe investigate massless n-point one-loop amplitudes of the open RNS superstring with two external fermions and determine their worldsheet integrands. The contributing correlation functions

Connecting the ambitwistor and the sectorized heterotic strings

A bstractThe sectorized description of the (chiral) heterotic string using pure spinors has been misleadingly viewed as an infinite tension string. One evidence for this fact comes from the tree

A Pure Spinor Twistor Description of Ambitwistor Strings

We present a novel ten-dimensional description of ambitwistor strings. This formulation is based on a set of supertwistor variables involving pure spinors and a set of constraints previously

Background constraints in the infinite tension limit of the heterotic string

A bstractIn this work we investigate the classical constraints imposed on the supergravity and super Yang-Mills backgrounds in the α′ → 0 limit of the heterotic string using the pure spinor

Amplitude relations in heterotic string theory and Einstein-Yang-Mills

A bstractWe present all-multiplicity evidence that the tree-level S-matrix of gluons and gravitons in heterotic string theory can be reduced to color-ordered single-trace amplitudes of the gauge

Heterotic and bosonic string amplitudes via field theory

A bstractPrevious work has shown that massless tree amplitudes of the type I and IIA/B superstrings can be dramatically simplified by expressing them as double copies between field-theory amplitudes

A compact formula for the complete tree-level S-matrix of pure Yang-Mills and gravity theories in arbitrary spacetime dimensions is presented and Gauge invariance is completely manifest as it follows from a simple property of the Pfaffian.
