The metric and the electromagnetic potential generated by a static, spherically symmetric charged massive object in any dimension are given by the Reissner-Nordström-Tangherlini solution. We derive the expansion of this solution up to third post-Minkowskian order by computing the classical contribution of scattering amplitudes describing the emission of either a graviton or a photon from a massive charged scalar field up to two loops. In four and five dimensions these amplitudes develop…

Classical off-shell currents

. We consider tree-level off-shell currents of two massive particles and n massless bosons in the classical limit, which can be fused into the classical limit of n +2 scattering amplitudes. We show



Schwarzschild-Tangherlini metric from scattering amplitudes in various dimensions

We derive the static Schwarzschild-Tangherlini metric by extracting the classical contributions from the multi-loop vertex functions of a graviton emitted from a massive scalar field. At each loop

From Scattering Amplitudes to Classical Potentials in the Post-Minkowskian Expansion.

We combine tools from effective field theory and generalized unitarity to construct a map between on-shell scattering amplitudes and the classical potential for interacting spinless particles. For

General Relativity from Scattering Amplitudes.

Weoutline the program to apply modern quantum field theory methods to calculate observables in classical general relativity through a truncation to classical terms of the multigraviton, two-body,

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 classical

Post-Minkowskian scattering angle in Einstein gravity

Using the implicit function theorem we demonstrate that solutions to the classical part of the relativistic Lippmann-Schwinger equation are in one-to-one correspondence with those of the energy

Second-order post-Minkowskian scattering in arbitrary dimensions

We extract the long-range gravitational potential between two scalar particles with arbitrary masses from the two-to-two elastic scattering amplitude at 2nd Post-Minkowskian order in arbitrary

Scattering of spinning black holes from exponentiated soft factors

We provide evidence that the classical scattering of two spinning black holes is controlled by the soft expansion of exchanged gravitons. We show how an exponentiation of Cachazo-Strominger soft

The amplitude for graviton-graviton scattering in D dimensions is calculated in the tree approximation. We show explicitly that in ten dimensions this agrees completely with the zero-slope limit of

Kerr-Newman from minimal coupling

We show that at 1PN all four-dimensional black hole solutions in asymptotically flat spacetimes can be derived from leading singularities involving minimally coupled three-particle amplitudes.

The subleading eikonal in supergravity theories

A bstractIn this paper we study the subleading contributions to eikonal scattering in (super)gravity theories with particular emphasis on the role of both elastic and inelastic scattering processes.
