Yangian Symmetry and Integrability of Planar N=4 SYM

Triangular Seminar Niklas Beisert (ETH Zurich)

16:30 QMW
room G.O. Jones Lecture Theatre

This talk is about integrability of Planar N=4 super Yang-Mills theory. We present a concrete notion of the corresponding Yangian symmetry in this model, show that it holds true, and discuss the (perturbative) implications for correlation functions and Wilson loops.

(Super)conformal Symmetry of Scattering Amplitudes in N=4 SYM

Regular Seminar Niklas Beisert (MPI, Potsdam)

16:00 QMW
room 410

Tremendous progress in computing perturbative scattering amplitudes in N=4 supersymmetric gauge theory has been made over the past few years. Importantly the planar amplitudes appear to display a dual conformal invariance next to the usual conformal symmetry. Altogether the symmetry enlarges to a Yangian algebra known from the context of integrable models. This infinite-dimensional symmetry might have the power to completely fix the S-matrix by algebraic means. In this talk we review the above developments. We then discuss conformal symmetry for tree and loop scattering amplitudes. It turns out that the free conformal symmetry generators are anomalous which calls for certain deformations to make the symmetries exact. These relate amplitude with different numbers of legs, and thus they contribute substantially to a complete algebraic determination.
