We explicitly calculate the vertices of the MHV-rules lagrangian in 4-dimensions. This proves that the vertices in the lagrangian obtained by a canonical transformation from light-cone Yang-Mills theory coincide to all order with the Parke-Taylor formula, filling the gap originally left in the lagrangian derivation of the CSW rules.

Generalisations of the MHV lagrangian theory to D-dimensions and to super-space

It has been known that the CSW rules correctly reproduce all tree-level scattering amplitudes for perturbative non-abelian gauge theory but fail to explain some of the loop order results. In this

Generating MHV super-vertices in light-cone gauge

We constructe the $$\mathcal{N}=1 $$ SYM lagrangian in light-cone gauge using chiral superfields instead of the standard vector superfield approach and derive theMHV lagrangian. The canonical



Structure of the MHV-rules lagrangian

Recently, a canonical change of field variables was proposed that converts the Yang-Mills Lagrangian into an MHV-rules Lagrangian, i.e. one whose tree level Feynman diagram expansion generates CSW

The Lagrangian origin of MHV rules.

We construct a canonical transformation that takes the usual Yang-Mills action into one whose Feynman diagram expansion generates the MHV rules. The off-shell continuation appears as a natural

S-matrix equivalence restored

The canonical transformation that maps light-cone Yang-Mills theory to a Lagrangian description of the MHV rules is non-local, consequently the two sets of fields do not necessarily generate the same

MHV vertices and tree amplitudes in gauge theory

As an alternative to the usual Feynman graphs, tree amplitudes in Yang-Mills theory can be constructed from tree graphs in which the vertices are tree level MHV scattering amplitudes, continued off

The MHV QCD Lagrangian

We perform a canonical change of the field variables of light-cone gauge massless QCD to obtain a lagrangian whose terms are proportional up to polarisation factors to MHV amplitudes and continued

MHV vertices and scattering amplitudes in gauge theory

The generic googly amplitudes in gauge theory are computed by using the Cachazo-Svrcek-Witten approach to perturbative calculation in gauge theory and the results are in agreement with the previously

The canonical transformation and massive CSW vertices for MHV-SQCD

The similarity of massive CSW scalar vertices and quark vertices can be understood using a kind of light-cone SUSY transformation presented in this paper. We also show that the canonical

One-loop MHV amplitudes in supersymmetric gauge theories

Using CSW rules for constructing scalar Feynman diagrams from MHV vertices, we compute the contribution of = 1 chiral multiplet to one-loop MHV gluon amplitude. The result agrees with the one

Six-quark amplitudes from fermionic MHV vertices

The fermionic extension of the CSW approach to perturbative gauge theory coupled with fermions is used to compute the six-quark QCD amplitudes. We find complete agreement with the results obtained by

S-Matrix equivalence theorem evasion and dimensional regularisation with the canonical MHV lagrangian

We demonstrate that the canonical change of variables that yields the MHV lagrangian, also provides contributions to scattering amplitudes that evade the equivalence theorem. This 'ET evasion' in
