This review describes the duality between color and kinematics and its applications, with the aim of gaining a deeper understanding of the perturbative structure of gauge and gravity theories. We emphasize, in particular, applications to loop-level calculations, the broad web of theories linked by the duality and the associated double-copy structure, and the issue of extending the duality and double copy beyond scattering amplitudes. The review is aimed at doctoral students and junior… Expand
The origin of the KLT relations and nonlinear relations for Yang-Mills amplitudes
Abstract By means of a kinematic analysis of tree level graviton amplitudes we find, at least through six points, that the reason of their decomposition as a sum over products of gauge bosonExpand
Covariant Color-Kinematics Duality
We show that color-kinematics duality is a manifest property of the equations of motion governing currents and field strengths. For the nonlinear sigma model (NLSM), this insight enables anExpand
The analytic structure of amplitudes on backgrounds from gauge invariance and the infra-red
Gauge invariance and soft limits can be enough to determine the analytic structure of scattering amplitudes in certain theories. This prompts the question of how gauge invariance is connected toExpand
Off-shell diagrammatics for quantum gravity
Abstract This article reports on how diagrammatic identities of Yang–Mills theory translate to diagrammatics for pure gravity. For this, we consider the Einstein–Hilbert action and follow theExpand
Kinematic Jacobi Identity is a Residue Theorem: Geometry of Color-Kinematics Duality for Gauge and Gravity Amplitudes.
A geometric interpretation of color-kinematics duality between tree-level scattering amplitudes of gauge and gravity theories and the kinematic Jacobi identity between each triple of numerators is a residue theorem in disguise is given. Expand
The double copy of the multipole expansion
We consider the classical double copy, that relates solutions of biadjoint scalar, gauge and gravity theories. Using a recently developed twistor expression of this idea, we use wellestablishedExpand
Two-loop superstring five-point amplitudes. Part I. Construction via chiral splitting and pure spinors
The full two-loop amplitudes for five massless states in Type II and Heterotic superstrings are constructed in terms of convergent integrals over the genus-two moduli space of compact RiemannExpand
BRST-Lagrangian Double Copy of Yang-Mills Theory.
We show that the double copy of gauge theory amplitudes to $\mathcal{N}=0$ supergravity amplitudes extends from tree level to loop level. We first explain that color-kinematic duality is a conditionExpand
Amplitudes from Coulomb to Kerr-Taub-NUT
Electric-magnetic duality, the Newman-Janis shift, and the double copy all act by elementary operations on three-point amplitudes. At the same time, they generate a network of interesting classicalExpand
Double Field Theory as the Double Copy of Yang-Mills
We show that double field theory naturally arises from the color-kinematic double copy of YangMills theory. A precise double copy prescription for the Yang-Mills action at quadratic and cubic orderExpand
