Recently Dmitry Chicherin, Johannes M. Henn and Georgios Papathanasiou published a paper on cluster algebra structures that have a high benefit for the research on scattering amplitudes. In the following article Johannes Henn goes further than the recent results. He explains what cluster algebras are and how mathematical detective work revealed those hidden structure gems – to lighten up the way of theoretical processes.
Workshop and Symposium come together: From 17th to 21st May the RADCOR & LoopFest 2021 will take place in a fully virtual format. The conference is dedicated to the application of quantum field theory techniques to particle physics phenomenology.
Congratulations to our partner Thomas Gehrmann from the University of Zurich for winning an ERC Advanced Grant. His research on “Theory of particle collider processes at ultimate precision“ will receive funding for the next five years.
Dr. William J. Torres Bobadilla published together with other scientists from different institutions a Review in the European Journal of Physics C (EPJC). This review is an outcome of the workshop "Paving the way to alternative NNLO strategies".
Matt von Hippel works on Scattering Amplitudes and blogs about them. His goal: He wants to demystify scientific research and the people who do it.
Theoretical particle physicists are always on the search for new paths to answers about elementary particles. „In one of our latest research work we followed a new mathematical way, the cluster algebras“, says Johannes Henn, the leader of the research team at Scattering Amplitudes. He and his colleagues found promising results for the calculations of particle collisions.
Antonela Matijasic started her PhD in our research group at the beginning of this year. Here she tells you about her way to theoretical particle physics and how the search for a good challenge keeps her motivated. Thank you, Antonela!
Scattering amplitudes experts watch out: The Center for Quantum Mathematics and Physics (QMAP) at the University of California offers a series of virtual workshops called „Geomplitudes“. The second workshop will take place on February 8-9, 2021.
The theoretical physicist's answer: a precisely imagined world
Our group member Vasily Sotnikov speaks about theoretical particle physics in general and his latest research results in particular.
The SAGEX Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN is organizing a school devoted to applications of Mathematica and Maple to the area of quantum scattering amplitudes within theoretical physics. Yang Zhang, one of our collaboration partners, will give a lecture series on: Introduction to Algebraic Geometry.
This question is set and also answered by the Quanta Magazine in one of their series. Please scroll down the article and you’ll find a paragraph about a camp of researchers called „amplitudeologists“.
Our new team member William J. Torres Bobadilla will give a talk on „Causal representation and Numerical Evaluation of Scattering Amplitudes“ on Friday, November 13th, 11:00 AM. If you want to join the seminar please email us for the zoom link.
Like any other science theoretical particle physics has its own language and its own terms. Even if some of these terms seem to be the same as in everyday life they have slightly other meanings in science. What can we do about this?
