From Pure Mathematics to Precision Physics: Modern Approaches to Scattering Amplitudes

The computation of quantum corrections to scattering processes has for a long time been hampered by the complexity of the integrals involved. In recent years there was tremendous progress in this area, partly due to the discovery of deep connections between scattering amplitudes and certain branches of pure mathematics. I will review these connections and discuss how they can be turned into new powerful tools for precision computations.


Host: Charalampos Anastasiou



HPV G4 lecture room

The colloquium takes place during the academic semester on Wednesdays, 16:15, in HPV G 4 on the Honggerberg Campus of ETH Zurich. After the colloquium we meet at 17:15 in front of the lecture hall for drinks and snacks.



Recordings of lectures from Autumn Semester 2007 to Spring Semester 2015 are available on the ETH Multimedia Portal.
Starting from Autumn Semester 2015, the recordings are hosted on the ETH Video Portal.
