Recursion relations for anomalous dimensions in the 6d (2, 0) theory

Abstract We derive recursion relations for the anomalous dimensions of double-trace operators occurring in the conformal block expansion of four-point stress tensor correlators in the 6d (2, 0) theory, which encode higher-derivative corrections to supergravity in AdS7 × S4 arising from M-theory. As a warm-up, we derive analogous recursion relations for four-point functions of...

Double copy structure of CFT correlators

Abstract We consider the momentum-space 3-point correlators of currents, stress tensors and marginal scalar operators in general odd-dimensional conformal field theories. We show that the flat space limit of these correlators is spanned by gauge and gravitational scattering amplitudes in one higher dimension which are related by a double copy. Moreover, we recast three...

New worldsheet formulae for conformal supergravity amplitudes

Abstract We use 4d ambitwistor string theory to derive new worldsheet formulae for tree-level conformal supergravity amplitudes supported on refined scattering equations. Unlike the worldsheet formulae for super-Yang-Mills or supergravity, the scattering equations for conformal supergravity are not in general refined by MHV degree. Nevertheless, we obtain a concise worldsheet...

3d $$ \mathcal{N}=4 $$ super-Yang-Mills on a lattice

AbstractIn this paper we explore a new approach to studying three-dimensional \( \mathcal{N}=4 \) super-Yang-Mills on a lattice. Our strategy is to complexify the Donaldson-Witten twist of four-dimensional \( \mathcal{N}=2 \) super-Yang-Mills to make it amenable to a lattice formulation and we find that lattice gauge invariance forces the model to live in at most three dimensions...

From 4d ambitwistor strings to on shell diagrams and back

We investigate the relation between 4d ambitwistor string theory and on-shell diagrams for planar \( \mathcal{N}=4 \) super-Yang-Mills and \( \mathcal{N}=8 \) supergravity, and deduce several new results about their scattering amplitudes at tree-level and 1-loop. In particular, we derive new Grassmannian integral formulae for tree-level amplitudes and obtain new world-sheet...

On-shell diagrams for \( \mathcal{N} \) = 8 supergravity amplitudes

We define recursion relations for \( \mathcal{N} \) = 8 supergravity amplitudes using a generalization of the on-shell diagrams developed for planar \( \mathcal{N} \) = 4 super-Yang-Mills. Although the recursion relations generically give rise to non-planar on-shell diagrams, we show that at tree-level the recursion can be chosen to yield only planar diagrams, the same diagrams...

Soft theorems from conformal field theory

Strominger and collaborators recently proposed that soft theorems for gauge and gravity amplitudes can be interpreted as Ward identities of a 2d CFT at null infinity. In this paper, we will consider a specific realization of this CFT known as ambitwistor string theory, which describes 4d Yang-Mills and gravity with any amount of supersymmetry. Using 4d ambtwistor string theory...
