Multipoint conformal blocks in the comb channel

A bstractConformal blocks are the building blocks for correlation functions in conformal field theories. The four-point function is the most well-studied case. We consider conformal blocks for

Pentagon OPE resummation in N=4 SYM: Hexagons with one effective particle contribution

We present the technique for resummation of flux tube excitations series arising in pentagon operator expansion program for polygonal Wilson loops in N=4 SYM. Here we restrict ourselves with

We review the bootstrap method for constructing six- and seven-particle amplitudes in planar $\mathcal{N}=4$ super Yang-Mills theory, by exploiting their analytic structure. We focus on two recently

Non-perturbative approaches to Scattering Amplitudes

This thesis is devoted to the study of scattering amplitudes using two non-perturbative approaches. In Part I we focus on a particular theory known as N = 4 Super-Yang-Mills in four spacetime

A novel algorithm for nested summation and hypergeometric expansions

Abstract We consider a class of sums over products of Z-sums whose arguments differ by a symbolic integer. Such sums appear, for instance, in the expansion of Gauss hypergeometric functions around



OPE for all helicity amplitudes

A bstractWe extend the Operator Product Expansion (OPE) for scattering amplitudes in planar N=4$$ \mathcal{N}=4 $$ SYM to account for all possible helicities of the external states. This is done by

Multichannel conformal blocks for polygon Wilson loops

A bstractWe introduce the notion of Multichannel Conformal Blocks relevant for the Operator Product Expansion for Null Polygon Wilson loops with more than six edges. As an application of these, we

Spacetime and flux tube S-matrices at finite coupling for N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory.

We propose a nonperturbative formulation of planar scattering amplitudes in N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory, or, equivalently, polygonal Wilson loops. The construction is based on the operator

Hexagon POPE: effective particles and tree level resummation

A bstractWe present the resummation of the full Pentagon Operator Product Expansion series of the hexagon Wilson loop in planar N=4$$ \mathcal{N}=4 $$ SYM at tree level. We do so by considering the

Y-system for scattering amplitudes

We compute super Yang–Mills planar amplitudes at strong coupling by considering minimal surfaces in AdS5 space. The surfaces end on a null polygonal contour at the boundary of AdS. We show how to

Gluon scattering amplitudes at strong coupling

We describe how to compute planar gluon scattering amplitudes at strong coupling in = 4 super Yang Mills by using the gauge/string duality. The computation boils down to finding a certain classical

Notes on the scattering amplitude — Wilson loop duality

We consider the duality between the four-dimensional S-matrix of planar maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory and the expectation value of polygonal shaped Wilson loops in the same theory. We

Space-time S-matrix and flux-tube S-matrix IV. Gluons and fusion

A bstractWe analyze the pentagon transitions involving arbitrarily many flux-tube gluonic excitations and bound states thereof in planar N=4$$ \mathcal{N}=4 $$ Super-Yang-Mills theory. We derive
