We show how all non-MHV tree-level amplitudes in 0 ? ? 4 gauge theories can be obtained directly from the known MHV amplitudes using the scalar graph approach of Cachazo, Svrcek and Witten. Generic amplitudes are given by sums of inequivalent scalar diagrams with MHV vertices. The novel feature of our method is that after the `Feynman rules' for scalar diagrams are used, together with a particular choice of the reference spinor, no further helicity-spinor algebra is required to convert the…

We propose a new, twistor string theory inspired formalism to calculate loop amplitudes in N = 4 super Yang-Mills theory. In this approach, maximal helicity violating (MHV) tree amplitudes of N = 4…

It is well-known that perturbative calculations in field theory can lead to far simpler answers than the Feynman diagram approach might suggest. In some cases scattering amplitudes can be constructed…

It has been known that the CSW rules correctly reproduce all tree-level scattering amplitudes for perturbative non-abelian gauge theory but fail to explain some of the loop order results. In this…
