ITMP Seminar "Invariant traces of the flat space chiral higher-spin algebra as scattering amplitudes"

ITMP Seminar
30 May 2022

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the next ITMP seminar will be held on Wednesday, June 1, 18:30 (Moscow time). It will be arranged via zoom.


Speaker: Dr. Dmitry Ponomarev, ITMP MSU

Title: Invariant traces of the flat space chiral higher-spin algebra as scattering amplitudes

Abstract: We sum up two- and three-point amplitudes in the chiral higher-spin theory over helicities and find that these quite manifestly have the form of invariant traces of the flat space chiral higher-spin algebra. We consider invariant traces of products of higher numbers of on-shell higher-spin fields and interpret these as higher-point scattering amplitudes. This construction closely mimics its anti-de Sitter space counterpart, which was considered some time ago and was confirmed holographically.


If you want to join the seminar please register here before 16:00, June 1.
