Amplitudes 2013
Max-Planck-Institut für Physik, April 28th to May 3rd, 2013

International workshop on amplitudes

The workshop takes place at Ringberg Castle, Tegernsee from April 28 until May 3, 2013 and is organized by the Max-Planck-Institut für Physik (MPP).

During the last few years the analytic study of scattering amplitudes has given rise to an active interaction between high energy physics, mathematics and string theory. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together leading experts working on novel methods for scattering amplitudes in gauge and gravity theories, reaching from formal developments to phenomenological applications. We intend to review progress and discuss promising developments in this highly energetic field. Thereby, we hope to inspire further development. The topics to be discussed include, but are not limited to:

  • Integrals and integrands of perturbative quantum field theories
  • Scattering amplitudes in (super)gravity and their ultra-violet behaviour
  • Gauge/gravity dualities, AdS/CFT integrability, Wilson loops and strong coupling results
  • String amplitudes and their implications from/to field-theory
  • Mathematical structure of scattering amplitiudes
  • Further analytic S-matrix inspired developments
