Group: Physics and Astronomy Colloquia

Category: Academic


I will review recent breakthroughs in understanding some general features of relativistic Quantum Field Theory and associated structure in physical prediction. Relating many theories from the entirely formal to the utterly effective, these insights weave a web between our precision descriptions of high energy QCD phenomena to pion scattering to classical black hole gravitational interaction all the way to cosmic inflation. I will introduce the field of scattering amplitudes as a conceptual laboratory for probing the invariant predictive content of physical theory.
