# The Duality Between Color and Kinematics and its Applications

@article{Bern2019TheDB, title={The Duality Between Color and Kinematics and its Applications}, author={Z. Bern and John Joseph M. Carrasco and Marco Chiodaroli and Henrik Johansson and Radu Roiban}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2019} }

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
