10+16 dimensional superspace as a building kit for scattering amplitudes
Max-Planck-Institut für Gravitationsphysik, Potsdam-Golm
SummaryScattering amplitudes describe the interactions of elementary particles and form the foundations to predict the results of measurements. They exhibit significantly richer mathematical structures and symmetries as the conventional Feynman-diagram prescription for their computation gives rise to expect. In the subsequent, a formalism with additional symmetries and spatial dimensions is introduced which manifests the hidden elegance of scattering amplitudes and allows for an intuitive approach.
