Description

The last years have seen remarkable progress in understanding the scattering amplitudes of massless particles in arbitrary dimension. They not only exhibit a simplicity completely obscured by the Feynman Diagram approach, but also a structure strikingly reminiscent of the worldsheet models describing string theory. After reviewing the key developments, I will discuss the worldsheet models, derive the loop integrands, and finally aim to draw some general conclusion about scattering in massless theories.
