# Symmetry and Action for Flavor-Kinematics Duality

@inproceedings{Cheung2016SymmetryAA, title={Symmetry and Action for Flavor-Kinematics Duality}, author={Clifford Cheung and Chia-Hsien Shen}, year={2016} }

We propose a new representation of the nonlinear sigma model that exhibits a manifest duality between flavor and kinematics. The fields couple exclusively through cubic Feynman vertices which also serve as the structure constants of an underlying kinematic algebra. The action is invariant under a combination of internal and spacetime symmetries whose conservation equations imply flavor-kinematics duality, ensuring that all Feynman diagrams satisfy kinematic Jacobi identities. Substituting…
