"A Modern View of Scattering"
Amplitudes encode the probability of scattering processes, such as gluon
scattering at the LHC. They harbor an intrinsic mathematical beauty
that can be exploited to devise new calculational methods that are far
more efficient than Feynman rules. Moreover, their structure also
reveals surprising properties, such as relationships between observables
of seemingly very different physical models. I'll introduce the modern
amplitudes program along with some recent results.
