Simplifying multiloop integrands and ultraviolet divergences of gauge theory and gravity amplitudes

- Physics
- 2012

We use the duality between color and kinematics to simplify the construction of the complete four-loop four-point amplitude of N = 4 super-Yang-Mills theory, including the nonplanar contributions.…

Non-renormalisation conditions in type II string theory and maximal supergravity

- Physics
- 2007

This paper considers general features of the derivative expansion of Feynman diagram contributions to the four-graviton scattering amplitude in eleven-dimensional supergravity compactified on a…

Gravity as the Square of Gauge Theory

- Physics
- 2010

We explore consequences of the recently discovered duality between color and kinematics, which states that kinematic numerators in a diagrammatic expansion of gauge-theory amplitudes can be arranged…

Perturbative relations between gravity and gauge theory

- Physics, Geology
- 1999

The heuristic relation (1) between gravity and gauge theory is a very useful way to think about gravity, at least perturbatively. Unitarity allows one to bootstrap the tree-level (KLT) versions of…

Five-point amplitudes in N=4 super-Yang-Mills theory and N=8 supergravity

- Physics
- 2012

We present the complete integrands of five-point superamplitudes in N = 4 super-Yang-Mills theory and N = 8 supergravity, at one and two loops, for four-dimensional external states and D-dimensional…

Duality and higher derivative terms in M theory

- Physics
- 2006

Dualities of M-theory are used to determine the exact dependence on the coupling constant of the D6 4 interaction of the IIA and IIB superstring effective action. Upon lifting to eleven dimensions…

Two loops in eleven-dimensions

- Physics
- 2000

The two-loop Feynman diagram contribution to the four-graviton amplitude of eleven-dimensional supergravity compactified on a two-torus, T^2, is analyzed in detail. The Schwinger parameter…

Iteration of planar amplitudes in maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory at three loops and beyond

- Physics
- 2005

We compute the leading-color (planar) three-loop four-point amplitude of N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory in 4 - 2{epsilon} dimensions, as a Laurent expansion about {epsilon} = 0 including the…

One-loop divergences of the Einstein-Yang-Mills system

The one-loop ultraviolet divergences of the quantized coupled Einstein-Yang-Mills fields are evaluated. They are precisely of the same nonrenormalizable form as for a corresponding set of free…
