Scientific goals

Scattering amplitudes describe the observations of high-energy collider experiments, providing a window onto the fundamental structures predicted by relativistic quantum theories. Through the research of the ESRs we aim to uncover the unifying principles underlying scattering, then apply them to a range of problems including those directly relevant to experiments such as those at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The research goals of SAGEX naturally separate into three distinct (but inter-related) groups:

Geometry: exploring the geometric, algebraic and algorithmic structures at the heart of scattering theory.

Loops: pushing predictions to the highest possible loop level and multiplicity.

Lab: applying and extending techniques developed in ‘Geometry’ and ‘Loops’ to problems that are directly relevant to current and future experiments at the LHC.
