California Amplitudes Meeting 2016

QMAP, UC Davis, June 7-10, 2016

The meeting will be held on the 4th floor of the Department of Physics in the seminar room. The focus is on recent topic in scattering amplitudes, in particular mathematical aspects of positive Grassmannian and Amplituhedron, non-planar on-shell diagrams, ratio functions in N=4 SYM, symbols and the basis of hexagon functions, CHY formula, BCJ relations for effective field theories.

The schedule is very flexible and it might change on the short notice. There will be thematic sessions with one (or more) introductory talks also for more general audience.

  • Tuesday, June 7, 3:30pm: Lance Dixon on Hexagon bootstrap.
  • Wednesday, June 8, 3:00pm: Zvi Bern on UV properties of gravity.

Also, Sebastian Franco will give a string seminar on Thursday at 3:10pm. The conference dinner will be on Thursday at 5:45pm at Seasons on the intersection of 1st and F streets.
