A bstractWe take up the study of integrable structures behind non-planar contributions to scattering amplitudes in N=4$$ \mathcal{N}=4 $$ super Yang-Mills theory. Focusing on leading singularities, we derive the action of the Yangian generators on color-ordered subsets of the external states. Each subset corresponds to a single boundary of the non-planar on-shell diagram. While Yangian invariance is broken, we find that higher-level Yangian generators still annihilate the non-planar on-shell… Expand
