Scattering Amplitudes and Riemann Surfaces
Speaker(s): Freddy Cachazo
Abstract: In 2003 Witten introduced twistor string theory as a novel description of the scattering matrix of the maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory in four dimensions. In these lectures I will give an introduction to the developments that have led to new formulations, also based on Riemann surfaces, of a large variety of theories, with and without supersymmetry, in arbitrary space-time dimensions.
