A bstractIn this work we show how a double-cover (DC) extension of the Cachazo, He and Yuan formalism (CHY) can be used to provide a new realization for the factorization of the amplitudes involving gluons and scalar fields. First, we propose a graphic representation for a color-ordered Yang-Mills (YM) and special Yang-Mills-Scalar (YMS) amplitudes within the scattering equation formalism. Using the DC prescription, we are able to obtain an algorithm (integration-rules) which decomposes…

A bstractWe continue the program of extending the scattering equation framework by Cachazo, He and Yuan to a double-cover prescription. We discuss how to apply the double-cover formalism to effective

Factorizations for tree amplitudes in the double-cover framework: from gravity to other theories

In this paper, we demonstrate that the factorizations for tree amplitudes in the double-cover framework, for various theories, can be generated from the gravity amplitude in the double-cover

Cosmological scattering equations at tree-level and one-loop

We recently proposed a formula for tree-level n-point correlators of massive ϕ4 theory in de Sitter momentum space which consists of an integral over n punctures on the Riemann sphere and

A double-cover extension of the scattering equation formalism of Cachazo, He and Yuan (CHY) leads us to conjecture covariant factorization formulas of n-particle scattering amplitudes in Yang-Mills

We investigate in the context of the scattering equations, how one-loop linear propagator integrands in gauge theories can be linked to integrands with quadratic propagators using a double forward

Transmuting off-shell CHY integrals in the double-cover framework

Using the CHY-formalism and its extension to a double cover we provide covariant expressions for tree-level amplitudes with two massive scalar legs and an arbitrary number of gravitons in D
